For enthusiasts of early banjo
From the Buckley 1860 book. I love the rhythms in this piece -- dotted notes, triplets, and quarter notes intermingled. Sleeping Colette is not impressed.
Cats are not easily impressed by anything but you will have a better chance doing so if you play a fiddle.
It's pretty easy (without trying) to make distressed animal sounds. I had a cat who would reach up and start pulling my pajama-bottoms down until I put on a stronger mute.
Ha! When my fiddler friends come over to the house to play, my cats are fascinated by the bows. And when I drag my fiddle out from under the bed at scratch at it, they tend to flee!
Yeah, my cat is particularly interested in the bow. Bring your fiddle to Antietam next summer. We'll do a scratch duet!
Alas, I'm nowhere close to that point... However I am looking forward to playing banjo to your fiddle!
This is really beautiful Paul, very unusual and tricky timing. It's like some big magical old music box. You play it just wonderfully!If Colette did not like it, she wouldn't be there. She is displaying the perfect example of cat awesomnity.
Thanks for the kind words Strumelia. Yes, Colette is pretty much doing what she does best...
