Thank you for posting this OK-4. I had not seen the music for this one before. I'm looking forward to trying it out!
Here are a couple more by Mr. Batchelder.
If you flip to page 212, I looks like the cited work is also contained.
Thank you, Mr. Merchant. Yes, that 1863 version looks to be the same with a couple of changes in title: The whole piece is now called "The Banjo", and the next-to-last section is now called "The Power of Music" instead of (originally) "Briggs' Favorite Jig". (That part is very similar to The Power of Music in Rice's 1858 book.)
I have tabbed the whole piece out (except the introduction) and set it in standard notation, and may get around to posting it some day.
Please do, that would be very interesting to see.
Here are two versions of TAB for the Batchelder score: 1) TAB only, and 2) Standard C notation with TAB. The TAB-only version omits most of the notation for dynamics.
(I tried to get the original score note for note - please let me know of any errors.)
The attached MP3 file makes an effort at playing everything in the TAB (with some flaws – sorry folks). "Brigg's Favorite Jig" begins at 2:15 and the Coda starts at 2:50.
Very nicely played! Thanks for the transcription as well.
