For enthusiasts of early banjo
This is the accompaniment only to a piece found in the Phil Rice Method of 1858. I find many of the accompaniment parts to be as interesting, and also as complete, as the solos found in the book.
That's fascinating Tim. It's true what you say!
Just yesterday(!) I was listening to Brian in another part of the house on fiddle, practicing on his own some of the minstrel tunes we normally play together in duet- and sometimes I found myself thinking- "What the heck IS that tune? It sounds familiar and beautiful, but I totally can't place it." Turns out it was the fiddle part he had come up with himself, and we had played the tune a million times, but when removing the banjo part it sounded like a cool but slightly odd new tune all by itself. That's the beauty of accompaniments and the awesomeness of creating a second part.
