Waltzing banjos

Patrick gave his disciples some homework and I thought I´d join the chorus. At first I tried to play the tune on my cello banjo. But it turned out (as often) that frailing chords doesn´t sound very good on the cello. It´s better to play more single notes than strums. So I recorded the tune on my Saga banjo and added the cello later. Hope you like it.

All of me

Yesterday I gave all that I had - to finger the chords of  "All Of Me". The Gettorf Jazzband met again. Every now and then I shoot the chords correctly and very now and then the brass guys found the right notes. So we had lots of fun again and will continue our efforts to play a tune the way it will be recognizable.

As you may hear here it will be a long way ;-)))
