Earlier this year a student and I got to discussing the banjo. He mentioned the fretless banjo, which I’d never heard of. So I searched YouTube. Found a video of folk musician Rhiannon Giddens playing “Camptown Hornpipe.” I liked it, and wanted to try imitating the banjo in an arrangement. Mulling over what tune to use, I hit on “Go Tell It On the Mountain.”
I finished my arrangement in March. But it took until now to get the second guitar part up to tempo. Since I’m too lazy to work up the first guitar part, I instead combined some computer generated instruments with my own playing.
The sheet music is here:
