Free Banjo Ringtones

If you have a cell phone that will allow you to store, send and receive MP3 files and use them for a ring tone, then here are some free ones that I recorded with my Pre War Gibson Style 4 TB conversion with the new, Steve Huber HR 30 Tone Ring.

This banjo has it all ... the pre-war "splat", killer volume, superb balance and response ... but if all you need is a loud ringtone that sounds like a banjo on your tiny cell phone speaker, then these will do ya!  Download 'em all ... FREE!

A Fast and "Foggy" Ring Tone "D" Lick Number 1 Chime Lick Funky, Blues Lick
Chromatic / Melodic Mix Descending Lick D - Tuning Lick Number 1 D - Tuning Lick Number 2 Crippled up Creek ...Fast!
Ending Lick Number 1 Ending Lick , Fast Number2 Hot and Cold running Corn Fire Ball Mail in a Real Hurry!
  Diggin' a Hole in Drop C tuning    

Most of these are under 10 seconds, but there are a couple that are a little closer to 15.  Enjoy!
