This is my first tab. It has a folksy/swing feel to it.
Song: Wagon Wheel
Artist: Old Crow Medicine Show
Album: O.C.M.S.

THIS IS NOT A BANJO OR FIDDLE TAB. THIS IS A GUITAR TAB, TRANSLATED FROM BANJO AND FIDDLE.

I tried to find a good tab for this song online, but I wasn't happy with any of
the tabs I found; So I made one.
Special thanks to pwade89 on YouTube for slowing the song down and isolating the
fiddle and banjo parts.

I tabbed this song by ear, so it may not be 100% but it is fairly correct. If you
find a mistake, leave a comment below. Thanks!

Legend:

h -Hammer on
p -Pull off
/ -slide up
\ -slide down
^ -bend to note

_________________________________________BANJO_____________________________________
Fairly simple. This just repeats throughout the entire song.

[If your guitar is the same as mine, you can't play this higher up part.
Here I will tab the actual part and an octave lower (I think it still sounds good.
Especially with accompanying guitar.)]

***Alternative***
Lower:
This is how I play it, just so it ends on the same ending riff that all the violin solos
in this song do.
