FOREWORD
This book takes you through step hy st('p instructions on working out song for the 5-string banjo ii'om basic melodies in Bluegrass-style and in Melodic/Chromatic tyle. Each section also contains exercises and examples for improvising.
The first section and the second section deal with working out the basic arrangement of
a song. The exercises involve replacing the x's around the melody with notes. The last section
in the book deals with refining the arrangement of a song using advanced technique. This
section includes examples of songs showing how entire measures or licks can be replaced
with licks fi'om a sheet of suggested alternate, advanced licks.
All of the steps to arranging a song for the banjo discussed in this book, are based on the
fact that banjo arrangements are actually combinations of specific patterns, (rolls, or licks),
which moe played according to the chords in the song. This method of arranging songs has
worked well with my banjo students, and Ihope it will work for you also. Happy Pickin'
Janet Davis

P.S. 1983: SPLITTING THE LICKS has now been
expanded to include over twice as much material as was
contained in the-first edition, which was published in
1977. This edition could easily serve as a supplement to
the earlier edition, for those who have that edition. The
following pages include many new licks and many
additional songs which demonstrate the process of
building an arrangement of a song to be played on the
banjo. Also, the instructional material has been expanded
to include answers to questions from people who
studied the first edition of the book.


ITRODUCTION
To playa song on the 5-string banjo, you actually play combinations of finger pattern (also
referred to as rolls or licks). To improviseo or arrange a song on the banjo, you must work the
melody into these finger patterns, according to the chords of the song.
Before attempting to arrange a song on your own, you should be able to play several
arrangements (from tablature) of songs in the style you will use, in order to familiarize yourself
with the rhythm, the finger patterns, and the overall feeling of playing in this style.
This book will deal with two very popular styles of picking the banjo with three fingers:
1.) Bluegrass-Style-where the melody is surrounded by background notes.
2.) Melodic-Style (Chromatic)-where each note picked is essentially a melody note.
These styles can be combined within one song, or one song can be played entirely in one of
these styles.
One noticeable difference between each style of playing is the rhythm ... where the accent
(melody) or stress falls.

Comparison of Accent of the Two Styles

BLUEGRASS-STYLE
1st 4th 7th

MELODIC/CHROMATIC
1st 3rd 5th 7th

Note: stress the notes indicated with arrows. Generally your melody notes are these notes.
In learning these styles, it is best to learn them one at a time, so that you will become
familiar with the finger patterns particular to that style.

To improvise generally implies arranging on the spur of the moment. One musical dictionary
defines "improvise" as - to arrange, however. For the purposes of this book, the terms
"improvise" and "arrange" will refer to the same things.

TABLATURE -- The tablature format used in this book is fairly standard:
t, i, m, r, p= Left hand fingering: t=thumb; i=index; m=middle; r=ring; p=pinky.
It means to repeat (play again) what has just been played. (Return
to the previous 1/: if there is one. Otherwise, return to the beginning
and repeat the section.)

The five lines represent the five strings; the top line is the first string, and
the bottom line is the 5th string, (the short string).
The number tells you which fret to push down with your left hand. (0 means
open- -don't push the string down with the left hand when picking it with the
right hand).

The rhythm used in this book is based upon standard notation. If you already
understand rhythmic notation, all of the music in this book can be counted in
4/4 time, with each eighth note ( ) receiving 1/2 count. Each X equals an eighth
rest, and also receives 1/2 count. (Each measure contains eight 1/2 counts.)

The following explanation is for those who do not already know how to play the
rhythm of the notes. (For the sake of simplicity, it is explained in ~ time,
with each eighth note equaling 1 count.)
Each measure consists of 8 counts.
The measures are divided by bar lines.

H, P, Sl, Ch = are left hand techniques used for sounding the strings with the left hand; (the
right hand picks the note preceding them). -- ---
H means to hammer the fret indicated, by pushing down the string with the
left finger, hard enough to sound the tone.
-Emeans to pull off of the string from the fret before the one to be sounded by
the pull off, therefore sounding the tone indicated above the P.
SL means to sound the tone by sliding to the fret number above the Sl with the
-left finger(s) from the number before it.
Ch means to bend the string with the left finger, (do not pick the string with
the right hand, just bend it). (Ch=choke)

The STEMS under the notes (or numbers) tell you how long to let each note
ring:

= 1 count. Each eighth note receives one count. Eighth notes are written alone,

= 2 counts. Hold the tone played for the duration of two tones.
= ½ count. Play two sixteenth notes in the same amount of time you play one
eighth note:

= 1 count. (An eighth) rest indicates silence for the indicated duration.
(Pause for one count.)
Repeat sign.

OR- means to stress or accent this tone ... play it louder.

x = pause, do not play, for that count. (An x is a rest.)

NOTE: For more complete explanations of the above indications, refer to a beginning
banjo book.

T, I, M = are fingering indications for the right hand. M means pick the string with the
middle finger;-l means index finger; T meansthumb.

Conclusion
Playing in Open Tunings with and without a slide will add many new dimensions to your musical path. I hope the areas we have explored in this book will open new doors in your playing and understanding of music and the guitar. I would also like to emphasize my belief that everything I teach in this book simply reflects the way I approach the guitar and should not be taken as the right or wrong way to do things. I believe that aside from doing anything that causes you physical damage, there is no right or wrong way to play music. Do what you like and what works for you. I also encourage any music student to study with as many teachers as possible and learn what you can from every musical encounter you have. Thank you for studying with me and I hope to see you down the road! Doug Cox
