For enthusiasts of early banjo
That was good Paul. You are just hitting the big ones head on, aren't you?
No, we have never done that one together. Al....want to try it? ( he lives down the road but we talk here...ha ha )
Hey Paul, have you worked from "The Banjoist's Budget" yet?
You're going to love it. IMHO these are the best melodies out there, and fingered with just a subtle enough push to get you in the right spot. I have extra respect for this work coming from A. Baur who saw much of it from the beginnings.
Sounds really good, and you're more true to the sheet music than I was. I had to leave out that pick-up note at the beginning of the high part. One of my band-mates could once play this on the fiddle, so I hope the 2 of us can get together on it some day soon.
Somehow I didn't see Tim's inquiry whether I wanted to try Dr. Hecock's until now. But after seeing your video, Paul. I wanted to learn it. I just, now, got around to it but it's not an easy one to latch onto! It's a crazy tune!..... but I like it and am determined to get it into my head, even with the odd twists!
