Wildwood Flower and Other Banjo Classics (formerly titled Playing in C Volume 1): Not all tunes are played in the Key of G. Not all singers sing in the Key of G. (Especially women and low-voiced men.) Broaden your horizons by venturing into the key of C—without using a capo. We ease you in gently by using simple songs like “Boil Them Cabbage Down” to make the transition as easy as possible. Yes, we do use many familiar licks, but they are often used in different ways. Lots of new licks, too! Now you will be able to play along when your friends pick the “Wildwood Flower,” which is traditionally done in C. After you learn to play in C, you can use your capo to play in D, E, and F. An invaluable skill in a jam session. Singers will love you! No Tab!
Boil Them Cabbage Down (in C position), Lonesome Road Blues (in C position), Do Lord, Worried Man, Wildwood Flower, Uncloudy Day, Arkansas Traveler, Leaning On The Everlasting Arms, and a little theory. (2 hours)
