Classic Banjo pickins

Wednesday, July 11, 2012

I've been picking away at the Classic banjo style!  Working on Joe Morley's  A DESERT TRAIL,  of which I only have twelve or so measures.  The classic technique has really improved everything else that I do fingerpicking-wise;  the hand position is so concise.  The numbered chords are a great way to simplify the music,  and very different from the individual approach to traditional mountain country picking.  I'm learning a composition,  not picking out a tune that I know by ear...it takes me back to the Ud,  and trying to pluck away at Makams.

I'm a great admirer of banjoist WM. J. Ball...what an incredible musician,  and sadly largely unknown.  Unfortunateley,  other than Ianthereallyniceman,  and the BHO's own Mike Moss,  classic banjo lies hidden from most pickers.

Loving the path!
