In Memory of Ginny Luetje...

In honor of banjoist Ginny Luetje, here are three free Perry Bechtel plectrum banjo transcriptions she and I did several years ago. The charts are very complicated but fun to attempt. Being a classical bassoon player, Ginny was a stickler on timing. Notes and rests had to be as correct as possible. The transcriptions were thoroughly researched through careful listening to the recordings as well as with periodic Buddy Wachter consultations. When playing these charts, please enjoy the wizardry of Perry Bechtel and the dedication of Ginny Luetje to help make them happen.
