For enthusiasts of early banjo

Two from the Converse "green" book of 1865, played guitar style on a Luscomb No. 2.

Sounds great played that way. I love the pairing of these tunes and  wondered if this is a traditional set or if they just happened to be paired up on the Rounder record, which is where I know them from. There are a lot of great combining of tunes on that recording.

Good question.  That's where I first heard them too.

Good!! Now, don't be getting too comfortable with all those frets. :)

Ha ha! Ok, but not before I retackle that version of Soldiers Joy...

I had a cool Luscomb...I get to time share it occasionally.

It had a real nice sparkle. Gave me the courage to try some of the high end stuff....like Harriman's Quickstep....a total bear.
