Converse yellow book. One of my favorite walk-arounds.
In gourds we trust.
A pretty one, that! :D
Solid Stroke stuff....real nice Paul
and closely "related" to Cotton Pod Walk Around? (Converse-from Tim's Early Banjo) Just curious....or maybe the same tune/different name? My novice ear and experience level are maybe not sharp enough yet to pick up the differences. thanx...
What if all the tunes in the tutors are actually just variations of the same tune? Like in old-time music?
(ducks and runs for cover....)
An audience thinks it is all one song...ha ha.
ps..live, I often play only one in each "style' so as not to lose or bore an audience. It does provide an opportunity to segue the similar ones together
Some folks will keep (brow)beating the same tired rhythm on their drum no matter what tune others happen to be playing. To them, others exist and play/talk for the sole purpose of providing them with another excuse to trot out their endless repetition. Then they wonder why they seldom get invited to music parties. OMG it's painful when they show up...again and again. They can, and will, ruin the scene for everyone.
Paul, anyone can play the notes. The real trick is to make a tune sound alive, interesting, and with a little taste of your own personality in it...even when the tunes are similar. You do that quite well ! I love how your gourd banjo sounds. :)
Do you tend to like low or high action on your gourd?- and do you find the action and/or bridge needs to be different on your gourd banjo than on your regular minstrel banjos? I have not decided that issue yet, and am still experimenting.
