Dear Banjo Picker,

I began the mail order business many years ago but it has been dormant for the last several years. I have decided to get back into the business in a rather small way for now.

The business is truly of the cottage variety. Many of the tab items are self- produced without the aid of a computer, although some are published through Mel Bay and look right nice. I like to say of the self-produced tab, it’s in my handwriting but you will learn to love it (that’s my hope). Some of the CDs are self-produced (quality, studio produced bluegrass). As I progress and get more time, I will upgrade and blast into the 1990s and get better at computer programs. Until then I hope you find some things that will bring you joy both as a listener and a student of the banjo.

BRIGHT MUNDE CD –
Alan Munde & Billy Bright

Billy Bright, a great friend and wonderful musician, lives very near by, and for several years we have been making music together in various formats (see Two High String Band – Hot Texas Burrito). Here we are playing in a duo format – just banjo and mandolin (I grew up musically on the sound of Doug Dillard’s banjo and Dean Webb’s mandolin in the Dillards – always loved that sound). We have put our heads together and come up with the 13 pieces recorded on Bright Munde – 10 original, 2 traditional, and 1 Bill Monroe number. It was a real creative boost for me to work with Billy. What was way cool is that he made my few original numbers make sense and really come to life. Hope you enjoy the banjo and mandolin music we made.
