do you have a favorite instrument to pair the banjo with? Like fiddle banjo combo's for example? Have you found you have a particular instrument you really like someone jam along on when you are playing banjo for the way the tone the instrument creates or playing style it suits contrasts or blends with banjo?
i like to pair the banjo with surface noise. or some abstract sound that is mechanical. i don't really find global answers to observations like you pose here so much, mainly it has to do with the piece of music itself and what it is telling me to do if that makes sense. the music itself bosses me around and tells me what to do, i don't really tell it what to do because the results are disastrous.
Have you played in Europe much? Any plans to come play this side of the pond in the near future?Danny Barnes responded on 08/26/2013 Next question
Danny, would you ever consider making a banjo instructional video for intermediate banjo picker's?
I bought your acoustic version of Rocket and dig it! I would love to learn how you get all that sound (rhythm) out of your banjo. I do realize it takes years of dedication to play like you but an instructional DVD to get folks moving in your direction would be very cool. Thanks, Randy.
