Dueling Banjos: How I play it on 5-string Bluegrass Banjo

Dueling Banjos: How I play it on 5-string Bluegrass Banjo

No banjo tune is "set in stone." Every banjo tune (or tune on any other instrument) can be improvised upon. But you need your own "bag of tricks" to draw from to make that happen. Here I found the opportunity to pass along some of my favorite banjo licks to you, within the framework of "Dueling Banjos", put together in a way that (hopefully) makes musical sense, set to a simple chord pattern. In my version I start off slow (like the movie version), with guitar and banjo swapping licks, then gradually build up speed into the "fast part," then go back to the swapping part, then into another fast part, then finish with an ending similar to the movie ending. I feel like I do this in the same spirit as the original 1954 version from Arthur "Guitar Boogie" Smith and Don Reno. They used it as an opportunity to show off their hot licks on the 5-string and plectrum banjos (so it really was "Feuding Banjos"). I don't really know many hot licks, but I hope you'll find this a useful tool for building your improvisational bag of tricks. Tab and play-along tracks at faster speeds are available at my site, littlerockbanjo.com.

5-String Bluegrass Banjo Lesson: "Rocky Top"

5-String Bluegrass Banjo Lesson: "Rocky Top"

Hear this tune played with guitar rhythm backup (slow, medium, fast) starting at 7:51. This is an instructional tutorial YouTube video lesson teaching my 5-string banjo version of the popular bluegrass tune "Rocky Top" on 5-string bluegrass banjo. "Rocky Top" is an "American country and bluegrass song written by Felice and Boudleaux Bryant in 1967 and first recorded by the Osborne Brothers later that same year." (Wikipedia). Sonny Osborne recorded the banjo part capoed on the fourth fret (key of B); I teach it here in open G. As usual, I teach the instrumental tune lick by lick using on-screen tablature, then put it together -- slowly at first, then faster toward the end, adding guitar audio overlay, as well as guitar chords. This is my own version, which reflects my desire not only to teach the melody of the song, but also to teach certain licks that I deem to be important (at least to me) and fit the given space. So there are parts where I stray from the pure melody, such as the ending sequence, in this case. My main goal, as always, is to have fun playing the banjo.
