Banjo Practice – Gonna go Huntin’ for the Buffalo

I learned this tune at Midwest Banjo Camp at the beginning of June this year, from Cathy Barton Para. It was in a class about tunes played by Ramona Jones, but I think she got this one from Jimmy Driftwood.

This tune is played in a special tuning on the banjo which Cathy referred to as Ghost Riders in the Sky tuning. it’s aEACE. So if you were tuned to an open A, you would just drop the second string from C# to C.

I like this one kind of slow and haunting but it’s nice sped up some too. Maybe I’ll record a faster version sometime down the road.

Have your say...
