This ol’ tune is typically played in A, but very commonly in C. I have already taught it in A, and wanted to play in C to use that high E string like I do on guitar. Tons of fun!
I think there is something for everyone (with a mandolin) in that lesson. I think I will have a hard time waiting to slide.
Another stellar lesson…
Can’t wait to dig into this one!
2019 is becoming an embarrassment of riches at BanjoBen.com for mandolin players!! Another treat to be enjoyed.
Y’all be sure to go to BanjoBenCLARK.com, haha
I can’t understand what icon you are saying I can slow down Black Mountain Rag with. I don’t see any icons that look like a slow down on my screen.
Well duh - just figured out you said the “gear” icon and found it - I was originally looking at all the facebook, pininterest icons etc.
Love this song.
I’m a working guitar player and only use my mandolin on a few songs. This was a great tune and lots of fun to learn. I finally have a mandolin song instead of just playing guitar parts on it. Thanks, great website.
Glad you find the site helpful as we really think that the quality and value is unsurpassed.
Come back often!
So I know somewhere down the line someone is going to want to play this song in A. Looking at the tab and listening to the video you had 7 years back - it did not have the great dynamics you composed for key of C. Will you be creating a new A version in the future or is there an recommendation to convert your key of C to Key of A,
Sure, I can create another one, thanks!
Thanks for posting. When we post and use this forum, everyone wins… so please come back and contribute often!
