Rawhide And Other Blistering Banjo Favorites

Rawhide and Other Blistering Banjo Favorites (featuring "Hazel Creek," the Murphy Method theme song): Show-off time! Once in a while there comes an occasion when you need to strut your banjo stuff, play as fast as you can, and wow all listeners. (Perhaps after a fiddler has just thrown down the guantlet with “Orange Blossom Special.”) That’s when you open up your bag of tricks and pull out one of these tunes.

“Rawhide” has long been known as a mandolin showpiece but it has a blistering banjo solo. (The bridge also introduces some funky new chord positions.) “Bluegrass Breakdown,” sister to “Foggy Mountain Breakdown,” can also be cranked up to maximum velocity with good effect. The slightly calmer “Theme Time” leaves room for inventiveness or hitting it straight on, while “Hazel Creek,” the song you hear at the beginning of most of our banjo DVDs, starts off slow and then kicks into overdrive.

All of these tunes feature advanced up-the-neck playing, giving your hands and mind quite the workout. When you’re ready to astound or if you’re just feeling frisky, hammer down on one of these. No Tab.

Bluegrass Breakdown, Theme Time, Rawhide, and Hazel Creek. (2 hours)
