Notes: This is an attempt to get some West Indian rhythms into the old tune Sloop John B. The first part shows a strumming pattern 1 Brush down with hand 2 Brush down with thumb 3 Brush up with index 4 Brush down with hand 5 Brush down with thumb 6 Brush up with index 7 Brush down with hand 8 Brush up with index If there is eight 1/8 notes in a measure the brush down with hand is emphasized or the 1, 4 and 7 note. The second part is a kind of clawhammer, also giving the emphasizing on 1, 4 and 7 note. A lot of drop thumb is involved and the drop thumb on note 4 should be loud.

Notes: Here's a waltz I wrote in honor of Cross Ranch State Park in North Dakota, home of the Missouri River Bluegrass Festival for many years. The only tricky part of the tune is dragging the right hand index finger across two strings in the measures with right hand fingering identified.

Notes: Here's my version of the 7th inning stretch classic written in the back of the Fergus Falls, MN Hospice Volunteers bus on our way to Target Field to be recognized at the Harmon Killebrew Hospice game. In deference to the memory of Harmon's batting skills, I tried to put some swing into the tune by playing it in 4/4 rather than the usual 3/4.

Notes: This is the Banjo Break for this song. I needed to fix a few things and I think I pinned it out pretty accurately. There is some string bending in the last measure on the third string, but I didn't know how to put that into the program.
