I just posted a review of Mike’s Banjo Mute which I have been using for several months and works well. I mentioned in the review that although the sound of the banjo is different and has more sustain / less decay, I still like the tones it produces and the tune I’m posting just kind of almost wrote itself as I was practicing. It needed a name so the obvious one stood out – Muted Melody. Hope you like it and it gives you an idea of how the mute affects the sound. In Standard G tuning (gDGBD)

Thank you Nestor. I just took the time to listen to all of the tunes you have posted on your music page. I clicked the "Like" button on each one of them. Very nice playing. I admire your willingness to tackle such a wide range of styles, include quite difficult pieces among them, and achieve great results with each. Your arrangements are also well done. Great work.

Wow! Thank you for the compliment!

And again, bravo for Muted Melody. The melody itself was very enjoyable, and as you might have guessed by some of my posts, I like the sound of muted banjo. It's nice to see people like you taking advantage of the performance possibilities for muted banjo, and using it as more than just a tool for quiet practice.

Very nice tune. I really like laid back music, and this is great. You play the guitar too?
