For enthusiasts of early banjo
I first heard this tune on Tim Twiss' Grapevine Twist CD. Written by Frank B. Converse. From Converse's Analytical Banjo Method (1886). I am playing it on Bell & Son Boucher Banjo.
Very nice performance Bob. Good tone on the banjo, too.
Killer!! Love it. Glad to see ya posting. Fingerstyle yet. The world is at your fingertips now. You transcribed it to tab, right?
Thanks for your comments! I just posted my 2 pages of tab for "Spangle". I'm working on learning to play straight from the notation, but as of now it's slooowww going. Also, the tab has been transposed from A to G.
Well played! Mr. Converse may owe a bit of a nod to James Hill's Wonder Hornpipe which is found in Bb in the older books, but shows up in O'Neill's as Coey's set in G.
I enjoy sourcing this stuff. I have O'neills 1001 - same book?
