Pibddawns y Blodau ~ The Flowers Hornpipe

Welsh Music for 5-string Banjo: Pibddawns y Blodau

Pibddawns y Blodau, a traditional Welsh Music tune translates into “The Flowers Hornpipe”

This song is a challenging one, lots of dotted eighth notes, giving it this push and pull sound you hear.  You’ll need to know a bit about inside rolls as well as single-string technique.

I did this recording with no picks; however, you can do it with picks.  It is in fact in standard tuning, so no-retuning required.
