More Bach! New Recording of Gigue from Partita #3

I posted a video clip of this earlier but the new audio clip of the Gigue from Partita #3 arranged for solo banjo and recorded by Dave Gannett.

I changed the key to G to better accommodate the 5 string. I find it sits really well in G, my only regret being contributing to the overuse of that key.

You can see the video clip and tablature HERE.Try a little tenderness in playing this one. It also lends itself to a bit of push pull in the tempo (although I may have overdone it in the recorded version).

Mr. Mouth - New Recording and Tablature of Original Tune

Another tune I recorded with Dave Gannett you can listen to HERE. Tishomingo plays this one almost every show and it's one I really like playing.

Here is the tablature for those interested (click to enlarge)....

New Recording of the Bourree from J.S. Bach's Cello Suite #3

I arranged this Bourree for solo banjo and recorded it with the great Dave Gannett. You can listen to the recording HERE.

It is in C tuning (gCGBD)and the cellists I listened to played it largely with an impassioned sensitivity which I tried my best to replicate on an instrument not best known for its sensitivity.

If you would like to try playing it here is the tablature...
