For enthusiasts of early banjo
Doctor Hecock's Jig from Buckley's New Banjo Method (1860). My gourd banjo was built by Barry Sholder.
That was a great version. It's a hard one to make it sound convincing. You glide right along and it sounds great. wow.
Thanks, Tim! I have to admit, this piece took me a crazy amount of practice before I could play it without it sounding too choppy.
Starting with that 1860 in particular, there were a great many tunes direct from the fiddle included in there. I wonder how many of those actually got played by banjo players-even professionally. Is the joke on us 150 years later?
