For enthusiasts of early banjo
Kerr's Merry Melodies Vol 1.
Nice tune. Was that printed in Bb, as it is in Howe's 1,000 Js and Rs?
No..it is in A
What is it called in Ryan's?
I couldn't copy and past the text from this site, but here's a site that might be of interest.....
I love that looooong slide near the end, Tim. Was that your own personal touch?
I can't get that tune out of my head!
Slide....oh I guess so. Just noticed it.
Great! Now I have another tune added to the many tunes I want to learn but have a hard time just focusing on one. OK, can you post the notation...if possible. I love it buddy!
Nice work as usual Tim. Here it is in Bb in Hamilton's Universal Tune-book,1853 , it seem's identical to Howe's 1867 setting.
I've probably said enough about this already, but I noticed in his index that Mr. Hamilton says it's Russian. I also found it in A in Riley's Flute Melody's Second Vol. that would take it bake to at least 1820.
