The Shady Grove Series

Posted by ZEPP on Tuesday, October 31, 2006

On my website at http://zeppmusic.com/MP3/index.html#10 you will find at this writing 22 recordings of Shady Grove.  I started this when a customer asked me to record for him a couple of banjos in which he was interested.  Later, another customer had a similar request, so I added a few more banjos. 

Then, I began to realize that I was building a audible collection of tone rings, pot sizes, heads, etc., so I kept adding interesting banjos.

Unfortunately, owing to the number already recorded and sold,  I think I'm sorta stuck playing Shady Grove as a demo piece for any new instrument now (though I guess I could always do more than one tune!).

So anyway, there it is--if you think it's boring hearing the same tune over and over, you should try playing it the same way over and over...

No, not really.  Truth is, it's been one of my favorites for well over 40 years, and I still like to play it.  A little hyperbole goes a long way! 8-)
