More banjo practice – a strange little tune

This weird and hypnotic minor key tune is called 41st Ave. Unlike many of the tunes I like to play, this one is not really old – it’s a contemporary tune. I learned it in a workshop taught by Cathy Barton Para at this year’s Midwest Banjo Camp, about the music of Grandpa Jones, Ramona Jones and the Jones family. Cathy told us this tune is by Mark Jones, who is the son of Grandpa and Ramona.

I’m playing my Dogwood banjo tuned to aDADE.

    Noted yer liking of Sharon Jones and wanted to point out that she isnt related to Grandpa Jones. Just sayin.

Have your say...
