Make Up Your Own Banjo Solos 2
Keys of D, C, F, and up the neck in G
1 Hour 55 minutes
Learn how to create convincing solos in common but challenging keys such as D, C, and F, without a capo. Use many of the same ideas to put together solos up the neck in G. Pete makes it easy to learn how to combine melodies and roll patterns – so you can learn to do it on any song!
Pete explores nine bluegrass standards, taking each song’s melody and showing how to weave it into smooth rolls for a full arrangement highlighting the recognizable tune. The addition of appealing licks, bluesy variations and other embellishments will give your solos polish and interest.
In D, no capo, G tuning:
- Roll in My Sweet Baby’s Arms
- As I Went Down to the Valley to Pray
- Angeline the Baker
- Colleen Malone
- Country Blues
- New River Train (C)
- Ain’t Gonna Work Tomorrow (C Tuning)
- Don’t Let Your Deal Go Down (F)
- Will the Circle Be Unbroken (G up the neck)
Close-ups of both hands and a printable tab booklet make every note clear!
