If you'd like the sheet music, here's a link to a piano tutorial I found very helpful. .... Don.

Lovely, Don. I had somehow never heard that song before but it really suits the banjo beautifully.

Well done and inspiring! Got a version that's just the banjo?

Thanks for posting your inspiration. When I look at the Eb piano tutorial, it seems to go way over my head, but I appreciate that it's there.

CarLLo and Ray, thanks fellas, glad you enjoyed ''Pure Imagination.''

CarLLO, sounds like this tunes a wee bit challenging for you at the moment, maybe you can tackle it down the track sometime, when you feel you're more confident!.
Sorry to say, I don't have a banjo only recorded solo track. Good luck!. ....... Don.
