Pick 6

There is much excitement behind the scenes here at #6 Potomac St. There will be many changes and announcements in the coming weeks.

With the new recording capabilities of my electric banjo, along with tweaks to the acoustic, it feels like a good time to post some collections of songs. I finally have a good recording setup. Why not knock out an EP for Spotify and the other streamers?

It was easy choosing gospel and blues songs. Cover songs is a tougher category because I know so many songs.

So, I picked up my banjo and started running through songs I know well enough to perform if I had to do a show with no time to prepare. To make things interesting, I limited the selection to songs people probably don’t associate with frailing banjo.

Help me narrow it down to six titles. Use the comments, forum, or contact me with your suggestions.
