Little did I know that 5 years later Mike would be playing slide banjo on my banjo! This book has a few good blues tunes in it.
Amazing stuff here for Roscoe, Pete, Cash fans.. I am very needy of suggestions, proposals, questions, that folks have about this. What would they want explained if they went to such a workshop. What advice would they give.
What do you want to know. What don't you want to know. I want to know what anyone here thinks about this, not just folks who are expert on the blues. I would particularly want to know what folks who don't know much about the blues or never play it on the banjo think about such an enterprise. These words are so good they need repeating. Too much of the banjo world is people trying to exactly repeat everything on tab. That is not how this music was created or played. Some folks are nuts. About 3 years ago when I didnt know anything about playign banjo and most of what I knew was dead wrong, I was playing something and a jam and someone, who I know is not stupid, came and asked me if I had tab for what I was playing.
None of the old time musicians we model after played anything the same twice! I'm happy to say I've been off the tab for 1 year now. Its almost like AA.

What a great thing that was! I for one, as ahuge blues fan and try to incorporate blues ideas on banjo whenever appropriate for the music I am playing. It was amazing to hear and watch those guys play piedmont blues and sing. They allowed this skinny white kid with a banjo,no less, sit in and attempt to play blues on his banjo-haha. If you ever get thew chance to sit down and learn form a real blues player, you'll never regret it and it will transform your thinking-.
Just dont think because one plays a blues scale or minor pentatonic that one can "play" the blues. That annoys me so much. About this product. Stock photo.
