Janet Davis started Janet Davis Music Company (JDMC) by selling tablature and recordings of the tablature through a catalog.  These “tabs” of all Bluegrass and many other styles of music for the 5-String Banjo, Mandolin, Guitar, Dobro and other instrument were considered the best, most accurate and easy to play arrangements available.  There were many disappointed customers when Janet discontinued selling tabs and recordings in the early 1990’s.  We have now been able to scan the tabs into our computer and digitize the cassette tapes to mp3s and make them available once more as downloads.  The complete list of all tabs and recordings will take a while to complete, but we will make them all available on this website.  Check back often to see new titles as they are added.
