Grateful Dead Covers Project

Tuesday, April 1, 2014

I love playing Dead Tunes! Seems easier for me because a lot of the songs are "burned" into my brain. I'm a believer that all of their songs can be played on the banjo. Especially three finger style. I mean, come on, Listen to recordings of the years when Bruce Hornsby was playing with them. He was doing banjo rolls on the piano!

I've been jamming with a couple other "retired"heads on a regular basis of and on over the past couple years. We recorded these videos a couple weeks ago to send into the Dead Covers project. We do lots others too depending on our moods, but these are the ones we recorded that Saturday.

I play a modified 3 finger style on an electric banjo, because there are drums. Sounds a little weird. I had better days playing and I' still learning, but well...It is me playing banjo, so I thought I'd post it here. Hope you enjoy!

Learning to play the banjo has been a journey. She's been my savior and my nemisis. She introduces me to great people and an interesting way of looking at the world.
