Mr. Banjo Ben himself suggested another collaborative starting sometime in early February. He suggested The 9 Pound Hammer (9#H), and it sounds like a winner to me. It’s a fun song. I figured I’d put a thread out here to allow people to sign up and get a head start on working out parts. The tempo is undetermined at this point, but there has been expressed desire for some pep. If someone out there is interested in recording but want a more moderate speed, we could fairly easily make two versions (one slower and one faster).
The key is not set, but I normally see it done in A. If someone wants a different key, put a suggestion out.
JW has signed up for a guitar break and I think Larry wants a dobro break. I volunteered for mandolin rhythm, but if anyone else wants it, have at it. I think we could put as many breaks into this song as we want.
If we do vocals, I humbly suggest Larry for lead (or at least a turn at lead if others want to sing lead as well). I can’t volunteer him, but he’s got a good voice for it.
Come on in… the water is warm!
