(Reposting with a fancy banjo version and as good as I’m gonna get it on fiddle...) New #banjototw time! @jdwilkes has chosen the classic “Soldier’s Joy.” I haven’t been playing enough fretless in these videos lately, so here’s a go on my tackhead.
Thanksgiving #banjototw time! The (almost) always smiling @zacpelo chose “Turkey in the Straw,” though I can’t imagine why he’d be thinking of it... There’s my banjo version, my little cousin’s banjo version, and a fiddle try at the end. Hope everything is having a nice holiday!
Ugh, what a week... and it's only Tuesday. Thank goodness for banjos. Here's West Fork Girls, @dustyleeelmer 's pick for the last Banjo Tune of the Week. I learned this tune years ago from an awesome banjo player named Phillips Saylor Wisor, but I haven't played in quite a while (obviously!) It was nice to revisit and play around with it a bit this evening.
Practice makes perfect but since i never do here's a real rough take of the #banjototw West Fork Girls picked by the great @dustyleeelmer. Played on the archtop I built for @squirrelbanjo. Gonna be sending her home hopefully this week.
