For enthusiasts of early banjo
I'm lazy and have not looked. What are other sources of 19th Century guitar music?
Hey, I just looked for Syrian Polka on the link Ian sent. I was going to try it on banjo here at home. I don't see it. I took mine from microfilm I got from Brown University. Can anybody else see this one??
Well, Charlie did anyway-- there are a few on by him on the LOC site. I don't recall seeing guitar specific stuff my Frank, though he did piano (his music education started with that). The levy sight has some guitar arrangements that Stephen Foster did to his songs (they have been criticized because they don't follow his tasty piano works) , they fall into the standard root-chord-root-chord-chord sort of thing we see in banjo songs.
OK, I just searched the Levy site for "guitar" there is lots- have fun. There is also a few guitar tutors on the LOC, those are what I used.
I'll go back to Levy's and poke around. I wonder if the Converse boys ever did anything like the Smothers Brothers..? ha ha
Thanks..the Method looks intreaguing. Anybody tried it yet? I'm goint to take a look.
Google "LOC" and see what you get (I'll give you a hint, it begins with "library," and ends with "Congress").
I know what it is. I just can't find it in there. I would appreciate a link more than a Google lesson.
there's banjo music there too, though 1879 is the earliest.
I still can't find that Charlie Converse Method Book. Help!
