For enthusiasts of early banjo
From Frank Converse's Analytical Banjo Method (1886), played here on my Luscomb No. 2 banjo set up with minstrel strings.
Recorded this last night on my Luscomb No. 2 banjo. It's been a while since I last played this tune, so I may have misremembered parts. I overstepped some of those triplets.
Paul--Excellent! Love the syncopation and bluesy riffs. That my kinda banjo music, slick and sleazy, goes down easy.
So long as I'm not going to get pummeled, slow this down a speck and I'll play it with you at Antietam.
Thanks for posting - good stuff! The Analytical method seems to have a lot of great pieces in it. I hope to explore it more, one of these years.
yes....and this is one that amazes me, by virtue of the fact that the notation communicates this infectious groove. Feel is music, but rhythm...is math.
