Tablature on my site

Thursday, June 21, 2007

I submitted tablature to BanjoHangout in January 07.  It is now October 09 and hasn't been posted yet.  So I am listing an alternate source here:

The Gunfighter (Original composition): Gunfighter.mid Gunfighter.gp4

Maricopa County Breakdown  (Original composition)

Dixie Breakdown

Down the Road

On 21 Dec 07, I added the following new banjo composition to my site (had to change the name from "Arizona Sunset" because I was told it was already taken...)  So now its called "Daybreak in Arizona":

Virginia-trained banjo player and tenor singer. I started playing guitar in 1965 then started learning the banjo in 1975 when I lived in Virginia. I was in several bands in Virginia. I have been in several bands in Arizona. I was a “7th grade choir reject” and didn’t sing (even to myself) for 20 years after that mortifying experience. While in a band in Virginia, I was talked into giving it another try and found that I did well with the high tenor part so characteristic of bluegrass music. I love the sound of the banjo and that provided the motivation for trying to play an instrument that I originally thought would be impossible to learn. My other interests include astrophotography, ham radio and writing software. My wife and I host an open-to-all jam session each week in our home that is now in its 30th year. See
