After Tim reposted the finale of Briggs' variations, I went back and relearned them, not having played them in a couple of years.

Holy cow, that is sounding good. Is it that fancy banjo, or are you sheddin' like crazy?

Oh, I play a bit from time to time... Haha!

I'm getting real excited about the new Analytical stuff. I have been playing them all every day, trying to get a nice musical feel out of them instead of focusing on one at a time. The fingerings are fascinating..perfection. He arranged some old classics, and has his own originals. Close your eyes, and you would think it was 1850. True to the old style.

Paul, have you done much with that part of the book? ( the banjo style pieces )

Sounds real good & reminds me that I need to learn this one!

Not as much as I'd like to.
