TENOR BANJO
SHORT SCALE / SHORT NECK BANJO / 4 STRINGS
G D A E TUNING
WHILE IT IS CUSTOM TO PLAY EACH TUNE TWICE OR RATHER THREE TIMES, MOST TUNES WERE PLAYED ONCE ONLY BECAUSE OF THE SHEER VOLUME OF TUNES. HOWEVER, SOME TUNES WERE PERFORMED TWICE. ANOTHER FEW WERE PRESENTED WITH BODHRAN ACCOMPANIMENT. THE TUNE FLOWERS OF RED HILL (SINGLE REEL) WAS PLAYED THREE TIMES BECAUSE OF ITS VARIATIONS. EACH TUNE IN THE SET SPORTING PADDY – MAN OF THE HOUSE (SINGLE REELS) WAS REPEATED THREE TIMES AS WELL. THE REEL MASON’S APRON WAS PLAYED WITH FOUR VARIATIONS. (SEE: MP3 DOWNLOAD TRACK TITLES)
CHORD ARRANGEMENTS
CHORD ARRANGEMENTS WERE METICULOUSLY VETTED FOR ACCURACY
APPENDIX
SUGGESTED FINGERING / UP & DOWN STROKES / HINTS / TRIPLETS & ROLLS MP3 DOWNLOAD TRACK TITLES
A LARGE AND DIVERSE NUMBER OF SETS WERE CHOSEN TO ALLOW INSTRUMENTALISTS TO START PERFORMING SETS OF TUNES STRAIGHT AWAY. THE SUGGESTED SETS ARE ONLY MEANT AS EXAMPLES AND SHOULD BE CHANGED IF PREFERRED.
FOR BOX PLAYERS THE BOOK PROVIDES CHORDS PLACED BENEATH THE MUSIC NOTATION. BUT THERE ARE ALSO CHORD ARRANGEMENTS INCLUDED WHICH MAY MAKE IT EASIER ON THE EYES FOR GUITAR, BOUZOUKI OR CITTERN PLAYERS.
