For enthusiasts of early banjo
From Buckley's 1868 book. For such a simple tune the major difficulty is keeping the arpeggios smooth and even. I've had varying degrees of success.

Sounds good Paul. It is difficult to maintain the right pressure to make that figure come out evenly.
Thanks Tim. You're right -- it appears simple, and yet it's not. It took me more than a few tries.
I would think of this as a Converse Combination....you plant the Strike, and the contact of the thumb on the 5th strings provides that stability.
Right. And the fingernail has to strike the strings at the same angle every time or else you go gliding off too fast, or get hung up on a string... And at first I also had a little trouble getting a good strike on the bass string.
I am tending to do ascendng arpegios like that guitar style. It's a snap that way. 1868 has a lot of that stuff.
Simple stinkin' little riff can really really hang you up sometimes...aghh
Guitar style is something I need to develop.
