Introduzione
Benvenuto in quello che ha ottime probabilità di essere il primo libro di banjo che hai mai
posseduto. Se lo stai leggendo, significa che sei interessato al banjo bluegrass a cinque corde
- forse ne sei addirittura entusiasta. Probabilmente hai avuto modo di ascoltare il virtuosismo
funky di Earl Scrugg, nella registrazione fatta per la Mercury nel 1950 di Foggy Mountain
Breakdown. Forse hai visto Béla Fleck e i Flecktones infiammare il palco con un miscuglio di
jazz, rock e bluegrass. Forse tuo zio suona in un gruppo bluegrass, e tu ti sei sempre chiesto
come sia possibile suonare così velocemente. Non importa come tu sia arrivato qui: l’importante
è che ora tu ci sia.
Mi sono “ammalato gravemente di banjo” nel 1962, e non ne sono più guarito. Avevo tredici
anni e possedevo una copia del fondamentale metodo per banjo di Pete Seeger. Cercavo di
ottenere qualcosa dalla mia chitarra (che, per disperazione, ero arrivato ad accordare come un
banjo). Quel Natale, i miei genitori mi regalarono un banjo Christy a manico lungo. Per me era
un’icona – perfettamente tondeggiante, con tiranti scintillanti in metallo e corde incredibilmente
lunghe.
A quei tempi non c’era molto materiale didattico disponibile per il banjo, solo il libro di Seeger,
e un testo di Sonny Osborne, degli Osborne Brothers. Ebbi la fortuna, ad ogni modo, di avere
un insegnante che mi seguì. Oggi c’è un gran numero di libri dedicati al banjo, riviste, filmati
e siti Internet, buona parte dei quali ti può fornire una valida introduzione allo strumento. Con
tutto questo ben di Dio in circolazione, sono lieto che tu abbia scelto questo libro per iniziare
il tuo percorso.
Essere un principiante con il banjo è una cosa buona, dato che la curva di apprendimento è
quasi verticale. Questo libro ti condurrà dalle basi ad abilità di livello all’incirca intermedio
con il banjo bluegrass. Lungo il percorso, potresti ritrovarti per un po’ fermo prima di fare il
successivo salto in avanti. Non preoccuparti, ho visto questa situazione migliaia di volte, tanto
in me stesso quanto in altri. Ti sembrerà di non riuscire a progredire oltre, quando all’improvviso
ti scoprirai migliorato. Ricorda di essere paziente.
Questo metodo parte dal presupposto che tu non sappia nulla del banjo. Ad ogni modo, se sai
già suonare uno strumento a corda, sarai avvantaggiato per quanto riguarda la coordinazione
delle mani. Partirai con l’esecuzione in strumming di alcuni accordi, che poi userai in abbinamento
a determinate combinazioni delle dita della mano destra. Successivamente, migliorerai
l’esecuzione delle melodie con tecniche più avanzate come slide, e legati ascendenti e
discendenti (rispettivamente hammer on e pull off), che ti garantiranno vere sonorità bluegrass.
C’è una parte che spiega come esercitarsi, alcune indicazioni su come suonare in chiave di C
e una sezione finale sulla lettura della notazione musicale standard, su pentagramma. Non ha
importanza quanti anni hai - non è mai troppo tardi per iniziare. Ho insegnato tanto a bambini
di dieci anni quanto a persone di una certa età. Se all’inizio ti sembrerà che i risultati lascino a
desiderare, un anno dopo ti accorgerai di suonare meglio. In effetti, non sarebbe una cattiva
idea quella di registrarti quando inizi, come anche successivamente. Riascolta le registrazioni
per renderti conto dei progressi che hai fatto. Ma soprattutto, cosa molto importante, trovati
con altre persone e suona in compagnia. Anche se sai solo eseguire una manciata di accordi e
non vuoi dare fastidio in una jam session, unisciti agli altri e suona. Questo accelererà in modo
significativo il tuo progredire, ti permetterà di assorbire gli spunti proposti in questo libro ed
esalterà la tua gioia di fare musica.

DEDICA
Questo libro è dedicato al ricordo e alla musica di John Hartford.

RINGRAZIAMENTI

FOREWORD

The primary aim of this book is to present, explain, and exemplify the basic techniques commonly used on the five string banjo to accompany vocalists and/or instrumentalists. "BACK-UP" is simply another term for "ACCOMPANIMENT'.
This book is designed so that a beginning student of back-up can become accomplished at playing back-up for many different songs, using the techniques commonly used by many professional banjo players. The basic outline of the book separates the various back-up techniques into categories. These are determined by the tempo of the song being played, by the lead instrument being accompanied, and by the area of the fingerboard in which the chords are being played. The first section of the book deals with general back-up techniques, which can be used as back-up for songs played at ANY tempo (speed), and which can be used as back-up for ANY lead instrument playing the melody. As the book progresses, each style of back-up becomes more specialized Each section of the book is also designed so that it first discusses the basic techniques and uses for a particular style of back-up, and then goes into some of the means for adding polish to that style of back-up. Thc guidelines and the back-up patterns offered throughout this book are based upon common practice among professional banjo players, and will, hopefully, provide you with the tools for playing effective back-up for many different songs.
Happy Pickin' Janet Davis


INTRODUCTION
What Is Back-Up?
A banjo player normally plays accompaniment at least 75% of the time when he is playing with a band or with another musician, orwhen he is singing, while only about 25% of his effort involves playing the melody of the song. Therefore, an important aspect of playing the banjo is the art of playing back- up.
"BACK- UP" is simply another term for" ACCOMPANIMENT".
Back-up played on the banjo consists essentially of a combination of two elements: CHORDS & RHYTHM. For most styles of back-up, the left hand works from chord positions, while the right hand plays specific fingering patterns. The same patterns can be used as back-up for many different songs.
Which patterns are used for a specific song will be determined primarily by the tempo of the song, and by which instrument is playing the melody.
The art of playing back-up on the banjo can, in many respects, be compared to the art of building a structure with a set of blocks of various shapes and sizes. The same set of blocks can be used to build many different structures. All of the blocks might be used for one type of building, whereas only a few blocks of a specific shape might be required for another building. Certain blocks might be more useful for foundation purposes (i. e. for support), while other blocks might serve more ornamental functions. Each style of back-up contains a definite set of patterns which can be used over and over as back-up for many different songs. How the patterns are used. where they are placed in the context of the songs, when
embellishment techniques are used,--all of these things work together to determine the overall effectiveness of the back-up for a specific song.

 

VAMPING
VAMPING is a commonly used back-up technique which involves playing
rhythm and chords. This technique can be used as back-up for any song, to
accompany any lead instrument or vocalist. It can be used as the only backup
technique throughout an entire song, or it can be combined with other
styles of back-up. The vamping technique can be used with any chord, or
with every chord in a song. You can't go wrong using the vamping technique
as a style of back-up. Although vamping is often treated as a beginning back
-up technique, its' use is by no means limited to beginners. Many great
back-up artists use this technique frequently! The vamping style of backup
is particularly effective for breakdowns and for other fast instrumentals,
such as "Foggy Mountain Breakdown", "Earl's Breakdown", and "Flinthill
Special". It is also effective for up-tempo vocals such as "Footprints In
the Snow" and "Salty Dog", as well as for slower paced songs such as "I
Wonder Where You Are Tonight". Jazz tunes are frequently supported by
vamping. The vamping style of back-up is often used as the primary style
of accompaniment for guitar and dobro lead breaks.
"Vamping" is effective ONLY if it is played correctly. It is NOT simply
picking chords to the rhythm of a song. Vamping also involves
DAMPENING the strings with the left hand, after each chord is plucked
with the right fingers.
STE PI: Hold a chord position with the left hand.
(Hold the full position--all four strings. ) G

STEP 2: Pick the 1st, 2nd, & 3rd strings
with M, I, & T of the right hand
(simultaneously). * This should sound the chord.

STEP 3: Now, partially release the pressure on the strings with the left
hand. This should STOP the tones from sustaining. DON'T LET
THE CHORD RING AFTER THE RIGHT HAND PLAYS IT. Release
the pressure of the left fingers, but DO NOT lift the fingers from
the strings. The left fingers deaden the sound in this manner.
(The 5th string is not used with this technique.)
NOTE: When chording up-the-neck, on the higher pitched tones of the banjo,
the right hand should pick the strings in the area of the banjo where the
fingerboard joins the head, well away from the bridge, ("Y" position).
*The early style of vamping involved picking only the first two strings with
the right hand. The third string was added sometime later, giving the backup
a fuller sound, and providing stronger harmonic support for the lead
instrument.

COMPLETE BOOK OF IRISH & CELTIC 5-STRING BANJO TOM Hanway CD TABLATURE SPARTITI LIBRO

COMPLETE BOOK OF IRISH & CELTIC 5-STRING BANJO, Hanway. CD TAB.

Product Description:
An important anthology of Irish and Celtic solos for the 5-string banjo featuring a comprehensive, scholarly treatise on the history, techniques, and etiquette of playing the banjo in the Celtic tradition. Includes segments on tuning, pick preferences, and tablature reading followed by 101 jigs, slides, polkas, slip jigs, reels, hornpipes, strathspeys, O'Carolan tunes, plus a special section of North American Celtic tunes. A generous collection of photos of Irish folk musicians, street scenes, and archaeological sites further enhances this fabulous book. All of the solos included here are written in 5-string banjo tablature only with a few tunes set in unusual banjo tunings. The appendices provide a sizable glossary and a wealth of information regarding soloists and groups playing Celtic music, Irish festivals, music publications, on-line computer resources, cultural organizations, and more. If you are serious about playing Celtic music on the 5-string banjo, or if you don't play the banjo but simply want to expand your knowledge of the Celtic music tradition-you owe yourself this book. The first-ever CD collection of Irish and Celtic music for 5-string banjo provides 68 lovely melodies and demonstrates revolutionary techniques for playing highly ornamented tunes and rolling back-up. Recorded in stereo with virtuosos Gabriel Donohue (steel- and nylon-string guitar and piano) and Robbie Walsh (bodhran- frame drum played with a stick), the five-string banjo is "out front" and plays through each melody in real-life tempo with authentic Celtic chordal and rhythmic backing. The recording features the music of all Six Celtic Nations and includes jigs, reels, hornpipes, slides, polkas, marches, country dances, larides, andros, slipjigs, strathspeys, airs and O'Carolan tunes. 35 songs in the book are not on the CD.
