For enthusiasts of early banjo

Continuing the trek thru the Green Converse, I hit on this little snag. This is the one with that bizzare instruction for a trill. I don't think I can do that as directed, at the tempo ("Quick") that is listed without it becoming a tremelo. Anybody else here who can do it? Seems bitchin' hard. So, I just did a trill as I know it. Kept a driving tempo, as I imagined it would have been 160 years ago.

I don't see the indication for a trill...

Ah... Silly me. I stumbled onto the easy one.

Oh wow today I learned about a trill. That is some weird wild stuff!

I would refer to the Converse explanations (1865 and 1886 ) and then go see what you can do with that spot. Listen to what Joe Ayers did with it too.

I cannot get that trill to sound any good. When he says stop the second string at B and trill with the first and second strings, that means you stop the first string at C?

What a stinker, eh?
