The Wreck Of Old 97 (fast)
The Wreck Of Old 97 (slow)
This is a simple arrangement of a classic tune in the key of D.
You could play it with the capo way up there on the seventh fret if your loyal to the key of G, or you could retune your banjo to open D tuning and play it that way, but for this arrangement I play it in standard open G tuning with the fifth string capoed at the seventh fret.
Stairway To Heaven Intro
I couldn’t resist. Other than an excruciating stretch for the C chord this intro can be played in standard G tuning.
Neo Classical Movement
Ascending arpeggios over a: G/F/G# progression.
And at last a Don Reno inspired backup pattern. It starts like the “Django Run” but heads down a blues pentatonic scale hitting the major 3rd and flat 5th along the way.
