For enthusiasts of early banjo
A few obscure ones from the back of the Rice 1858 Book. Using a Bell gourd banjo.
I learned some tips from the great Tommy Tedesco years ago re: interpreting scores. Thinking about intent and result. In something like this, I see a line sort of difficult to play...that second cluster. What you look at is the composer ( or transcriber's ) intent. It is a rise starting on one pitch and ending on another. The math of the line does not quite work out, but I see it as hauling ass up to that note. Play it, and try to imagine what the player intended...keeping a groove. Some things defy transcription in any exact sense. Anyway, this is what I made of it. If someone else has an idea, man...I am all ears.
