This is a sister-piece to Nightfall, which Steven Watson wrote for 5-string banjo. I hope you like it. Score and tab available.

Intersting Rob: this is a clear demonstration of how, in the hands of a talented player, banjo can be used in different musical contexts!
It would be intersting the comparison between this tenor version with the original five string scoreā€¦

The Ome tenor sounds really good :-)

 Thanks, Paolo! You have three statements there. Here are my replies:



1. Yes, I think the banjo can certainly be used in different contexts. The composer of this piece is a classical musician who is very suprised at how much he likes the banjo for his music. He is totally re-thinking the instrument.



2. I have confused you. This is not a 4-string VERSION of the 5-string original. It is a companion piece. Here is the 5-string piece from the same composer, called Nightfall - a wonderful work!



3. Yes, the Ome is wonderful! I am in love with it!
