For enthusiasts of early banjo
For the provenance of this tune, and for the tab by Jim Dalton, go to http://minstrelbanjo.ning.com/forum/topics/early-black-banjo-piece
This piece, as well as its tuning, has been discussed in various contexts in the forum pages of this site. I found it going through some of Tim's videos. When I heard it, I knew I had heard it many times before -- but where? The answer, of course, is Clarke Buehling's "Morceau" on his "Out of His Gourd" CD. I set about learning it and once I fro'd de banjo out a' tune - in this case "double G" tuning - the tune seemed to play itself. Then I discovered Jim Dalton's tab and notes (thank you, Jim!) and I realized there is more to this little tune than what first meets the ear. After ten recordings I thought I'd got the little variations right, but now as I watch and listen I see that I haven't.... But, it's still a great little tune and it's begging for percussion...
Hmmm... The "Buck Dance" recorded by Buehling for Hyatt's gourd banjo site is another tune: http://www.dhyatt.com/music/David_Hyatt/cbdh_BuckDance.mp3 "Morceau" recorded by Clarke Buehling is also on Hyatt's gourd banjo site: http://www.dhyatt.com/music/Clarke_Buehling/CB_Morceau_didlake.mp3
Your right, I always get those two mixed up
Really good, Paul. One of the best versions of this quirky little piece.
Thanks for your kind words, Carl.
