I’m playing 5 string banjo, guitar and electric bass in my church’s Christmas Concert this year. The banjo piece is an ensemble line that is featured about 10 times in a full orchestra/rhythm section and full choir setting. Violin, penny whistle, banjo and guitar play the line together at about 116 bpm. It’s sorta tough but I’m glad that I read music because it makes it quicker and easier to get to a reasonably good performance. For me, reading opens up gig possibilities as well as a world of In tabbed music.

Last note is "God" as in "praise be..." or "thanks that's over!" ?

Sounds like fun, have a great time and a Merry Christmas...I think God is the first word of the phrase...probably something like "God I want a Guinness" since it's for a Celtic Christmas song.

Here’s the tune from last weekend ... there’s a banjo player back there somewhere playing with the fiddle and piccolo ??
