The Banjo Song
Four or five years ago, someone gave me a banjo and I thought, if I can play this, I'll be a happy man.
So I practiced every single day and I've come a long way. I used to couldn't play a note, now I can.
Yep.
That one.
You go to university and get a music degree and learn everything about music there is to know.
But if you can't write and you can't read, you just practice till your fingers bleed, then you get a B-A-N-J-O.
B-A-N-J-O, B-A-N-J-O, B-A-N-J-O. You get a banjo.
Spell it too. Yep.
Some people say it's silly. Banjo's just hillbilly music played by someone who's married to his cousin.
Mark Twain was no banjo fan. He said a gentleman is someone who can't play the banjo, but doesn't.
When you see something done well, it looks easy and it's hard to tell. Simple things can be hard to master.
Well, the fact is you need a tip or two like don't stand up in a canoe and when you hear a banjo, paddle faster.
Banjo has a history that goes back through minstrel seed in the southern states at the time of the secession.
Before they invented the tone ring and the finger picks and the fifth string and the dribbling and the vacant expression.
I was not born in the USA, but I play my banjo anyway because it prevents me from becoming too bluish.
And I know if I practice for a while, I could play almost any style, even something Jewish.
I was born in the USA, but I play my banjo anyway because it prevents me from becoming too bluish.
I was born in the USA, but I play my banjo anyway because it prevents me from becoming too bluish.
