Workshop Description: Let’s have a banjo hang in a tuning I like to call “weird F” fCFCD tuning. It has a beautiful and mysterious sound.
I’ll play and explain how to play an interesting version of Devil’s Dream from George Landers via Mike Seeger. This is not the same as the popular fiddle tune by the same name. It employs some really interesting two finger, index lead right hand techniques which I’ll show in detail. This tune is also a great gateway into the endless wonders of alternate string pulloffs. I’m looking forward to sharing some quality banjo time with y’all.
