Discuss the Banjo lesson: Wayfaring Stranger



Two solos for this one in A minor, but we’re playing out of the G minor position and capoing at the 2nd fret. The first solo is the basic melody, while the 2nd solo has some super slick bluesy thrills!


I’m just starting the basic melody…aaaand loving it. Popular at local jams here.


there are 2 ways one can go with this tune,Ben’s Capo 2nd G minor approach or open “G” out of A minor positions,it’s Hard to decide,Ben’s rendition is Freekin’ AWESOME,what to do,what to do???


You know what, I was listening closely to the melody when he was playing the Bluesy 1st pt with all those great licks and I discovered that if you can play this tune you can play that old “Jazz Classic” Sumertime,when the living is easy" with a few minor alterations ,WOW
