I’m very excited to share my arrangement of the Professor Longhair classic “Big Chief.” This is the very first piano tune that I arranged for banjo and set me down the path of adapting blues and boogie for the 5 string. This can also be found in the March 2016 issue of The Banjo Newsletter.
I really like the boogie woogie banjo thing, I’m of the opinion that anything can be played on the 5 string, not just bluegrass or folk , nothing against either one. ive been playing beatles music, a little bach, scott Joplin, and trying to figure out some blues riffs. now I’m workind on big chief, thanks
Thanks, and glad you dig it Rick!
