Dock Boggs Ripoff Project

Thursday, April 30, 2009

Hi.  I've been wanting record some stuff to put up on Banjo Hangout for a long time, so I decided to try to record performances of all 8 of Dock Boggs' original Brunswick recordings.  I haven't worked out all of them yet, but over time I'll get to them all.

My approach is pretty literal.  I like to try to learn songs and styles note for note, not because of any lofty ideas of purity, but because that's just how I like them.  Maybe in time some individual style of my own will seep in there, but that's not my goal.  I just like to try to play like the greats.

I posted 3 songs last night.  I hope you enjoy them, and comments and critiques are welcome.
