Wow. That is how to play the banjo. ‘Come Along’ is the opening track on Mean Mary’s new album, ‘Alone’, due out on 18th September. All the songs on the album were recorded alone in Mary’s home studio in Nashville: just Mary’s timeless voice and her banjo or guitar (or ‘banjitar’ – a cross between the two). “I’m just a banjo picker,” she sings on this song, which is a real understatement from a fabulous player who has over 15 million views on her YouTube channel. A musical prodigy who could play the banjo, guitar and violin by seven years old, Mary is a real talent. Check out this fast, finger-picking fun.
