Charlie, Great idea to use the 6th chords. Not usually heard in banjo music. Captures the ear and it works to perfection to set up the following chord choices. This is a very unique sounding piece of Bluegrass. ( not so easy to do ) Tom

I actually really like the sound the banjo produces. I don't know what it is about it, but the banjo is just so unique sounding. I think you really utilized the banjo sound really well here!

Excellent composition! I love that little banjo line that repeats the two chord sequence, reminds me a bit of Tin Man. Makes the song unique and interesting.

Good stuff, Charlie!

Hi Charlie,

Great tune and performance. This is some real sweet Bluegrass. This is one of the most original banjo sounds I've heard in a very long time - and that you utilized that creativity on a Bluegrass number makes that much more exciting.

Some really nice music here, Charlie. Totally loved it!

Alan

Well done, Charlie.

Terrific chord progression. John Hartford wrote banjo pieces that included chords not usually found in bluegrass, yet kept it sounding bluegrass. You've done that here...

Really nice.

This is a really nice piece. I echo the comments above about the unusual (and captivating) sound from the banjo here. (Almost makes me sorry about all those banjo jokes I tell. Almost. :-) )

Wow - what a tune! The groove on this is unreal. It has so much energy and charisma to it. I can't help but tap my foot, and envision how incredible this would sound performed in a live setting.

Great work smile Thanks for sharing!

As you know the two of us played in bluegrass bands (traditional and progressive) for many years so we are always keen to hear a bluegrass tune on the forum.

The chords definitely took it into the realm of "New Grass." Well done.

Using the mandolin "chops" shows that you have a good feel for the genre.

BTW, Scott Vestal is a fine picker. Used to hear him in a small venue many years ago.

Yep, we like it!!

Thanks for listening Deryk. I had a picture of a small group out under the trees at a festival in my head as I worked out the tune.

Charlie,
A fine tune that really showcases the style ...and then sends it somewhere new ( glad Tom identified the chords that give this an
original flavour).
Toe tapping but relaxing at the same time.

Hello, Charlie

Yes, this is exactly contemporary bluegrass banjo tune.
The chords, Gmaj7 - Cmaj7 that come out repeatedly is not usually heard in banjo music.
Very unique!
And as Noel said, this was a real pleasure to listen to.

Best regards.

Hi Charlie.

Got my foot tapping all the way through.
Enjoyed the suspense the chord structure introduces.
Good one.

Cheers.

Yes, I came across the progression while auditioning styes in another project and it felt at once like such a great hook, I stopped the other project and put this together around it. It sounds so 'right' I'm surprised we don't hear it often in contemporary Bluegrass. Thanks for listening and commenting.

I thought I had commented on this already because I've listened to it a few times...actually, a good number of times.

I have to say it sounds authentic AND new at the same time to me. I'm not going to claim to know the genre as well as many here, but I do listen to it a fair amount. It's just such a great style of music.

I think the newness for me is the chord progressions that are being discuss. I personally, really like the choices you made. I like the unexpected that works!

Well done my friend! And, now for another listen...

Thanks for taking time to listen and comment Josie. I appreciate your kind words about my singing and it only accentuates how sorely we've been missing you as well. Gosh, and we've been missing your fantastic vocals. The fact we both posted a bluegrass tune is a testament of how the stars align on occasion. Hope things are such that we'll be hearing more of you here on the forum.

Yummy banjo licks with a major 7th chorus. Short and sweet - I enjoyed it, all right.

Very cool back track. Banjo was excellent. As Tom said chord changes were very interesting and gave the song a very original sound and feel.

Sounding great Charlie! Love those non traditional major 7ths chord in there.

Those first chords sound like a cross between a Bm and a Gmaj7th somehow. Maybe my ears are playing tricks on me. What was the exact chord notation you typed in BIAB in the first two to four measures?

Sounds great!

Love that picture too. Where did you get that?

The first four measures are Gmaj7|Cmaj7|Gmaj7|Cmaj7| (input into chord chart GJ CJ)

The photo is an internet download from a google search "free and royalty free banjo images"

Thanks for listening. Glad you enjoyed the song.

This is really fantastic. Could be the theme music for a movie.

Come to think of it, maybe it ought to be the theme music for a movie.

Great contribution, nothing less.
