Genre: Classical / Playing Style: Classical

Composed this years ago but just decided to record it. Added some guitar backup to fill out the sound a bit. It's not bluegrassy or Old-Timey, but it sounded a bit classical to me so at the risk of offending the purists out there that's how I classified it, and that's how I settled on the title, which may be pronounced Broken if you so desire. :>) In G tuning.

Yesterday our daughter-in-law gave birth to our fourth grandchild, Camille. Our other daughter-in-law had a boy in February, so that is two for us this year! The first three each has his/her own banjo tune composed by Grandpa so with this one Camille joins them. Heading down to Philadelphia in a few minutes to see the little one and the proud parents.

I was thinking of composing a tune for the season and came up with a melody this week. Decided to go all the way and write some lyrics, which I've never done. I am uploading a clawhammer video which is a shorter version of this MP3 that has guitar and vocal tracks and is fingerpicked. Perry Como wasn't available for the vocals so yule (pun intended) have to endure my singing. Even after 13 years in the grave Perry's voice has to sound better than mine ever will. I'm including a page with the lyrics in the Sound Off forum post because with my singing you won't be hearing them clearly in the MP3. Anyway, hope you enjoy and have a good holiday season, whatever you may be celebrating. In Double C.

Finished composing this tune recently so I thought I’d post it. I added a second banjo track as backup and also a guitar track to get a little base going. Still trying to figure out Audacity, mixing, all of that stuff so it’s not as clear as I’d hoped. In Standard G tuning (gDGBD)

Yesterday our daughter-in-law gave birth to our third grandchild, Evan. Charles Shultz’s Linus character famously posited “The way I see it, as soon as a baby is born, he should be issued a banjo”. That may not be practical but I see no reason why a baby can’t have his/her own banjo tune. This one might be a bit to sprightly for a lullaby but I’m sure Evan won’t mind. In Double C.

Our first grandchild was born the day after Thanksgiving last year, so today she is celebrating her first Thanksgiving with us, something to be so thankful for. Before she had arrived I composed this tune for her in Double C tuning. Hope you enjoy and all have your own Happy Thanksgiving.

Just a simple frailing tune. I had most of this composed awhile back but finally got around to adding a final part so thought I’d record and post it. In Double C tuning (gCGCD).

Think it was the tempo and notes from around :19 to :30 that suggested the title. Whatever. In Double C.
