For enthusiasts of early banjo
R. Bishop's Hornpipe, from the book: "Buckley's New Banjo Method" (pub. 1860).
The structure of this reminds me of "Dance, Boatman, Dance" from Roscoe Parish, with that crooked turn-around near the end. Maybe that's why it stood out to me. There are a couple of others from this collection I'd like to learn to play.
Thanks, Tim for recording those 117(!) Buckley 1860 tunes.
You are in "no Man's Land" once you enter that part of the book.
Beautifully played. Your Banjo sounded so nice... who made it?
It was built by Terry Bell, aka "Bell & Son" banjos.
Hat's off to Terry for producing a fine instrument and well done with bringing that tune to life.
Real nice, Bob. Great sounding tune and banjo. Good work Terry. Bob, I live in the South and it's cold today. Where are you that you can play outdoors in shirtsleeves?
I'm in Jacksonville, FL, and it's about 75F right now. It was in the 60's this AM when I made the video, and the birds seemed glad that March had arrived!
Bob--I'm in Chapel Hill, NC and it's supposed to warm up here tomorrow, so maybe I'll hear the birds, too. Again that sounded great.
Fellas I am out here in California, and it is pouring here in Santa Barbara...THANK GOODNESS! This is a perfect day to sit down and learn this tune measure by measure, maybe by tonight I will have it down enough run through it without stopping. Fun tune!
