Clinch Mountain Backstep, Part 1
 
The great bluegrass singer and banjo player Ralph Stanley recently passed away at the age of 89. His bluegrass banjo tune “Clinch Mountain Backstep” has become a bluegrass standard that players of every instrument should know. It’s in A Mixolydian and has an extra beat in the second half. Chad starts by playing through the A Mixolydian scale and then takes “Clinch Mountain Backstep” apart phrase by phrase. He also shows you how to anticipate or “jump” the beat as well as some bluesy slides and double stops.
