Hi Mr. Barnes, just wanted to add my voice to the folks who have asked about transcriptions. Speaking as a picker who finds tab a great help in learning, I would be grateful to have a book of your tunes near to hand when it's banjo time. I can sure see not doing it though too as writing tab is kind of pesty.
well it's nice of you to care and to reach out. but i have all these cds and various items for sale, and the last thing i need is another labour intensive project that would sell very few copies. i don't know where you live but if i play in your town i'll show you anything you want to know. all of my songs are easy. i make them that way on purpose. most only have two or three chords. if you took one of my songs to a competent banjo teacher they could get you going with ease. thanks again for caring about all this stuff.
according to the barnes ontological system "time doesn't exist."
how do we keep rhythm?
Danny, I just read the interview you and Matt did in the 2014 Banjo Newsletter. I tried to reply but couldn't. Here's what I tried to say: "Danny knocks it out of the park, as always. One of my favorite people as well as players. I always like to see where music is going in the minds of its visionaries. An excellent interview that helped and let him express himself rather than going in some standard or predetermined direction." Keep it up man, you make my head hurt (but my mouth smile) as it opens to these new ideas. Also, have you ever thought that on your sign up form the directive to "select the year you were born" is very appropriate? After some deliberation, I decided to select the year on my birth certificate, but as a banjo player since 2000, I could have put that. Finally, have you read EarthGame A Player's Guide, by Timothy Wade Huntley? I think you'd like it. It's very hard to find much about him, but I think he lives up your way somewhere.Danny Barnes responded on 03/17/2016
