For enthusiasts of early banjo
I like it.
Only complaint is that you don't play the tunes for long enough each.
This is my very favorite version of Cornshucking. What an ensemble !!!
I want to make a comment on this. It was a really fabulous gig. I put the group together in "modular components" meaning it was an unrehearsed group. I spoke a lot about the tunes and got together with each member separately, but it was their high caliber of musicianship that pulled it together. We hit the stage, and it seemed magical. Gigs where they pay enough and I can snag these folks on an off day are rare.
I did notice how the tuba player adapted very quickly to the places where chords changed. While listening, I thought to myself 'He doesn't know the tune by heart but the audience would never know that because he adapts on a dime- must be a real good musician'.
Ha ha ya The last part of Cornshucking you started bangin' those triplets, Sommer came slidin' in with doublestops, the tuba and bass drum started kickin' it and someone in the crowd lost their mind. Love it.
Strumelia, I noticed that. My dad played a tuba in school. He said he couldn't read a lick of music, "I just tooted." This video is a good example of how to hold back, not make a mess, let parts be parts, and let the music do its thing. Did Sommer harmonize on any songs, Tim?
No...she did not sing anything.
