This arrangement is going to work on adding two and three note chords to this great melody. I wanted to create an arrangement that would sound good with or without accompaniment. Happy Independence Day!
Here’s a solo for the classic tune Angeline The Baker. We’re going to work on playing in the key of D without retuning!
Here’s another great fiddle tune in the Key of G to work on playing melodic style banjo. This tune will have you spanning the entire neck of the banjo and is a great practice tool to work on shifting positions. Also a great practice tool to get used to playing some of the melody on the 5th string, which is a common tool is melodic style banjo.
A straight ahead interpretation of the fiddle melody, this song is a workout in the Key of C! I wrote this arrangement to show how to play a melody in the Key of C without retuning the banjo. A great exercise in transitioning from down the neck to up the neck. Watch the tab closely as the 5th string is used to play the melody, a common tool in melodic banjo playing.
