Ha,
Rickey, all of this has be played on banjo for years. You are just playing modes in all sorts of variations. I'm all for entertaining the troops but this is just showing off. Hey Brother, it's all been there for years and has very little to do with Bluegrass or Old Time banjo.

It is fun to watch you "stun" everybody with your ability though...Jack

I think this site works best when we support each other.

When you talk about modes you might want to mention that though you are playing a G scale the modes are in different keys, e.g., A Dorian, NOT G Dorian. This confused me for a long time.

Ricky,
Just for the record, the *** term you use in your video is against BHO rules.

Bela and others sure proved there's more to a banjo than bluegrass and old-time. To each his own.

And "yes"......please "show off" all you want to. Good inspiration for the rest of us.

A fellar once told me, Them that can....."do it"................Them that can't....."teach it!"

Nothing new, but everything is always new to every generation of banjo players who never had an older player in their family.

Dressing up old know-how in a new vernacular, is fine with me; anything that keeps a kid playing is as good as any other thing.
