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.
