Hey gang, we performed "A Night in the Harem" when we opened for Eddie & Martha and Tom. Only one change: I picked it on the banjo instead of the dojo. Our guests really liked the way it sounded, so I decided to put a banjo version up here.
I've had some Hangout members ask me about the second part - it's not minor. it goes to B-flat. B-flat is, of course, what you use to turn a G-major into a G-minor; that's probably what they were hearing. I originally stuck that in to test my problem-solving skills: how the heck do you gracefully get back to G? A recent addition is that little "departure" before I play the theme for that last time. It's a G-sharp. Adds a nice bit of tension, don't you think?
You ought to hear the chords I didn't play...
