Rather than answer this email myself, I thought I would post it here to encourage other German pickers to say howdy to one another – and I am curious to hear how all of you would tackle the solo in question.
hope you feel better.
Thank of your wonderfull Youtube tutorials and your books I play the Banjo half a year now and it works so good, wow. I can`t believe that I’m a Banjo Player and I’m one of only a few Frailers here in Germany. Last week my wife and a good friend met a small Pub in our Town and got our instruments with us, my wife with the mandoline and our friend with the Bodhran, because we played a little jam session at home, before. The Barkeeper invite us to play a few songs, we were very afraid about that but we did it and it works wonderfull, we played some irish classics and I played solo some of the songs I`ve learnd from your videos (Mountain Dew, Wreck of the old 97, John Hardy, Boil them cabbage down and so on). It works so good that we haven’ t to pay any beer at that evening 😉
Now I plan a Johnny Cash Banjo Project, in Germany the most people know no other folk or country musician
Now I have a problem, I sit in my living room hours and hours to find the notes of the guitar solo in folsom prison blues. but it doesn`t work, I don`find them. But I think this solo is an essential part of the song. did you know the notes or can you help me to find them…..
