New Banjo Tune: Heavy Pedal

For all you banjo fans out there, I wrote a new bluegrass banjo instrumental called “Heavy Pedal” for The High 48s’ new album Daddy Was a Bank Robber.

It’s in the Key of D (for Driving) and was inspired by my love of the powerful string bends and slides of the pedal steel guitar. This one goes up to 11– have a listen and let me know what you think!

Also, here is a little behind-the-scenes footage of me working out the 2nd break before going into the studio:

Heading into the studio tomorrow to record my new #banjo number w/ @thehigh48s – still tinkering with my 2nd break. #bluegrass #woodshedding
