A Fiddle Tune For Banjo – Andy Ploof

Here is a tune that I originally learned on the guitar from the “Blake & Rice” album. The tune is in the key of D and I arranged it for the banjo in G tuning with the high string capoed or tuned to an A. It’s a mix of melodic and single note picking with a little bit of rolls in the first part.
