G.D. West: Banjitar Improvisation No. 1


I saw a guy on Reddit doing some banjo improvisations in a non-Bluegrass style, which I thought was pretty interesting. Most of my practice sessions are spent exploring what the instrument does, not working on other people's material. As a player, I'm more interested in exploring and creating, not necessarily reproducing works by other players. In some cases, I might take music from a different instrument or style and try to adapt it. After watching the guy's improvisation video, I thought I would start occasionally recording my own improvisations and sharing them out. Some of them turn out pretty good and they may end up solidifying into a more structured composition over time. Enjoy.
