New Pandolfi tracks online

Chris PandolfiChris Pandolfi, banjo man with The Infamous Stringdusters, has posted a couple of works in progress on his MySpace page.

The two tracks are tunes he has written and intends to record for a future solo project, and are presented in his MySpace music player as unaccompanied banjo recordings. One tune, Melancholy, is very modern while the other – which bears the interim title C tuning – owes more to American old time music.

I’m a sucker for 3 finger banjo played in double-C tuning, and am also a great admirer of this young man’s music, but can be objective enough to recommend dedicating a few moments to sample these tracks. Banjo players especially should enjoy hearing Chris in this intimate setting where his command of tone and his interesting compositional sense are front and center.
