A while back my band One More Dollar decided we should post a video of a couple of banjo tunes I created years ago. Since we became a band, we decided to blend these tunes together into a Medley for performance purposes.
The first tune was a tune called "the old banjo" which was originally composed after I had repaired an old buckbee banjo for a customer. While I was testing out my work this tune fell out and I have hung on to it ever since.
The second tune was a tune called "when I was a young man" and originally had words, but due to its complicated vocals, I have just left the words off to the point they're lost into history somewhere.
When these two are put together they really bring alive the audience so here it is, and if you like our band, feel free to go to onemoredollarband.com and see our other videos and sign up for our updates. Also, the banjo I'm playing is a Snowbird Little Birdie that I built.2 comments
