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 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!

I live in a town on the prairie with 125 people in it. Life is normal can keep your cities. :) I also have a couple of websites. One is my personal site for me and all my hobbies:
