How To Play Blue In Green On 5 String Banjo

by David Bandrowski

Learn to play the jazz standard Blue In Green on the 5-string banjo. This jazz ballad was made famous by Miles Davis and shows you how you can explore new harmonic changes on the banjo. Jazz ballads with a slow moving melody give you a good opportunity to try some new chord voicings that you probably don't usually use on the 5 string banjo.

You can find the lead sheet for this tune below the video on this page.
