A Site Dedicated to all enthusiasts of Classic Style Banjo
Classic Banjo Solo played on a Clifford Essex Concert Grand.
This one is above my pay grade but I wanted to show off my Grand Concert that I've had since the Fall ABF Rally.
Brilliant - it takes proper dedication to learn something like that - and the CE sounds great.
Great playing and fabulous banjo!
Above your pay grade? ... Ask for a rise! This is one tricky piece and you made a really good job of it. I recorded my shabby attempt some time ago falling over my fingers on several occasions, and it doesn't get any easier! Even "Fifthless Frank Lawes" couldn't play this without the odd G on the 5th string !!!!!
For those who don't know, Frank Lawes played Classic Style on a Clifford Essex Paragon.... with ONLY 4 strings! So he didn't have the benefit of the 5th string G. It is a good job that we do, eh Joel?
Great work and a particularly fine "right hand technique" !
Hi Ian, I've watched your video a few times and I am glad that I have someone to share in with the struggle.
I noticed you threw in some Bill Ball style runs in your playing... nice!
I feel I was just doing good to get most of the notes from the page out of the banjo.
Thank you for the complement on my right hand. I have been working at that and slowly getting smoother.
