Poor Winner's....the ugly stepchild that is ignored.

Showing this violin arrangement sheds a lot of light upon banjo arranging......the way the key is dropped to have the thumb string become tonic, and then use it rhythmically. Do you all have access to the banjo notation of this one?

Good arranging.....Mr Hawthorne or whoever did it.

Very nice Chris, you have inspired me to try this tune myself.

Tim - no. Btw is all of Winner's 1864 in G/D ?

Tim, I don't seem to have this one either, I did find a table of contents and there are only a few tunes that show up in both books.Interestingly, the back cover of the violin book list Buckley's Banjo Instructor ($1.50 that was pretty steep), but not  Winner's.

Paul...yes, written in G/D

Wes...that brings up another...do you have any of the Buckley Violin books?

Comment by Wes Merchant on April 7, 2016 at 2:25pm

Sadly no, they seem to have a copy in the University of Pittsburgh Library so I'm going to try to get by to visit it now that my son lives there.
