You may be familiar with guitar shredder extraordinaire, Joe Satriani. Satriani opened his album "Flying in a Blue Dream" with a performance on a Deering 6-string banjo. In an interview, he said he had ordered it and it was delivered to him while he was in the studio. He said he tuned it up and sat down on the floor to just play around on it a little. The engineer was so excited by the sound of Satriani's improvisations, he ran and got a microphone and recorded it on the spot. The improvisation became a piece titled, "The Feeling." Here in a 1990s MTV performance, we get to see "Satch" perform it live.
Banjo Bill shares a brief account of his musical origins and how he got started playing on banjitar. He has an interesting idea for tuning...
This is a useful lesson from Brad Davis. I love the sound of his Deering banjitar! Maybe someday Deering will want to sponsor me or want me...
12-string guitar is doubled by 6-string banjo on this track. This sounds huge and a 12-string banjo adds sparkle to the big middle section.
