G. Swain Buckley's Celebrated Minor Jig

This one comes from the Buckley 1868 Book. Credit is given to Fred Buckley (G. Swaine's brother) G. Swaine must have been one bad mutha! Check out his picture in the Sweeney Book holding that monster banjo.

Chord shapes just happen, don't they?

I kind of agree with Tim. Sometimes it is just easier to hit the chord shape when playing through various notes. I'm classically trained on piano, not on stringed instruments, but I find that it is much more efficient to use the chord shape when it makes sense, especially when playing an Alberti bass pattern, or an arpeggio (see Greg, I remember your lecture from 2 years ago). Am I missing something?
