Flagstaff, Arizona

Meet me in Flagstaff, Arizona. I will visit the Bluegrass Festival from September 13th to 15th.

2 Worlds (Violin and Banjo)

I came across Tom Adams “Lowlands of Holland” recently, and so I had the idea of composing a piece featuring the c-minor tuning. The piece is called 2 Worlds because you find stylistic elements of bluegrass and classical music. Basically my picking here is a kind of melodic style picking but there are also some Fleck like picking patterns in the backup for the violin. As usual both parts are played by myself. Tab and lead sheet of the violin is ready for email. Picked on the HUBER BANJO.

Amazing Grace (Violin and Banjo)

It’s done!

An old melody in a new shape! I was thinking a long time about how to arrange the melody of Amazing Grace for Violin and Banjo. Now I come up with this halfway bluegrass/ halfway classical sounding arrangement. I am on banjo and violin. Hope you enjoy.

Rocky Creek (Fiddle and Banjo) 

Rocky Creek is the first fiddle tune I wrote. In contrast to most standard fiddle tunes this piece has 4 parts and a bridge leading back to the a section. The banjo is played mainly in melodic style except for part D which features single string stuff and irish style triplets. The fiddle part is a combination of classical and fiddle bowingstechniques. As this piece features similar stuff like the A part of Cripple Creek in its B part I decided to call it Rocky Creek. This piece can also be played with string orchestra accompaniment which sounds really great, but this version is not recorded yet. Picked on the HUBER BANJO. Hope you enjoy.

Horizons for Violin and Banjo

I guess you never heard something similar before?! This piece features the Bb-tuning. Sorry for some wrong intonation in the violin. It was quite challenging to record that as there are some tricky passages. I called this piece horizons as I want to pick “where no one has picked before”. Picked on the HUBER BANJO.

Prelude for Banjo (1 Banjo only)

Here is my Prelude for Banjo. I composed this piece in 2003. On this recording I use a big reverb to simulate a big concert hall. The piece is mainly about altering chords slightly and also about creating a line in all those notes. It seems to be easy but the hard thing is to let all notes ring as long as possible. Some notes seem to be delayed but this is done to emphasize those notes as melody notes. The hardest part is the end of the second half where you have to play some scales. Picked on my japanese FAKE GIBSON.

Only Time (2 Violins and Banjo)

So you still think that a banjo can only play fast and happy stuff? Here is something to bring you some tears in your eyes! Yeah thats pop banjo! Actually I do not listen to pop music that much but this is just one of the most touching melodies I have ever heard in my life. I came across this song on youtube and I was so amazed its beauty that I immediately cancelled all plans for this day and I started to write my own arrangement of this piece. It works so well on banjo and violin! After 3 hours it was done. The next day I recorded it. Everything is played by myself including the mistakes LOL! Please get me some comments. Picked on the HUBER BANJO.

Jesse James (Fiddle and Banjo)

I decided to come up with a new version of JJ which features more variations. At first you hear the melody in half speed using double stops on banjo. Than I pick a standard bluegrassbreak in the key of G followed by a fiddle break in the same key. Now I switch back to the key of D and I pick the solo you might know from my old recording. To round it up I finish the song by using the double stop melody on fiddle. A tab of the break in the key of D is provided in the photo section on my account. Hope you like it. Picked on the HUBER BANJO.
