Two tracks of my Banjo. Besides being a ridiculous pick-up line, the title refers to the infamous bass pedals of the same name that underline this piece. Nothing like hearing these live at a prog rock show to make you hold on for dear life as all the beer just vibrates out of your cup. I play all the instruments on all my pieces. I was born in May anyhoo.

Here I pressed RECORD first, THEN put the fingers down, and see where they go. Here's a Free form stream of ideas and my first phrases, as I just started playing the banjo when I recorded this earlier this year. Using my new Fender 58. Where's Take 1? , don't wanna go there...but, I thought I'd pressed "Record" guess not.

This is my impromptu, on the spot song made just for Angie's Website, to show off the new RK-99 that I bought in June, 2008.

Please let me know what you all think of the finger patterns in this. There's three-finger too. I'm just starting banjo playing when I recorded this early in 2008. Trying some home-made picking patterns that are more classical. I'm not only learning to play banjo when this was recorded, but ditched the default Dunlop style picks, which were much too clunky for big hands. Here, I use the Perfect Touch Thumb pick that Angie gave me, and Ernie Ball Pickies which fly without getting caught. I know most pickers don't play songs with drums, but I have much better feel on the strings when I play to my drumming vs. just a sterile click-track.

I know we're in the banjo hangout, but take a break you'll appreciate the banjo more with fresh ears, so check this out: VICTORY is a song that I arranged and then recorded by playing every orchestral instrument myself into my samplers on my MIDI guitar and MIDI keyboard. The song is only a minute long, but I used about 45 tracks to record, and don't even ask about the laborius mixing process..ha ha. Thinking outside the "Genre" box will make us all better musicians in general, so get uplifted and then go attack your banjo :) Joe.
