A silly romp through a bug's life if it were a broadway musical done bluegrass style. It has some inspired banjo soloing. What more can I say... oh, I wrote the opening lyrics too. From my alter-ego band, Whiskey Chimp's album

A modern swing-style banjo take on the Inspector Gadget theme. This one's on my new album "Hello Blue." Hope you like it.

A sample from my new album, if it ever comes out. I played both clawhammer and bluegrass style banjo parts. I've always like the combo sound of duet banjos. This one seems to bounce along nicely.

Came up with this one as another open D tuning song for my students to learn. I could have called it "Fun with hammer-on's and pull-offs!"

This tune was inspired by the killer whales off of Vancouver Island in Canada. Their spectacular dance which celebrates the kll of another whale pod far away is both awe inspiring and terrifying at the same time. Hope you like the yin-yang of this tune. There are some varations to the theme which I haven't tabbed out yet. E-mail me if you want a copy.

Here's another favorite clawhammer tune. You can find this one on my new album "Hello Blue" as well. I played the clawhammer banjo part and the guitar solo and rhythm guitar parts.
