Bluesy Banjo
Bluesy Banjo

“I like making bluesy music. That meshes well with a lot of Hot Rize songs, and it often surfaces in tunes I write. Blues typically involves a loose and dynamic rhythmic feel, as well as an edgy tonality usually including a lot of flatted thirds and sevenths, even flatted fifths despite being in a major key.” — Pete
