For enthusiasts of early banjo
From Buckley's Banjo Method, 1860. I'm dropping the triplet from the 8th measure because there's something about the seventh measure that's messing with my right hand position when I get to the eighth. Needs work.
That's the kind of timing that is really hard for me to wrap myself around for a long while, but once I get it then it seems fun and snappy. Then i have to start all over on the next tune that's slightly different. Hmm..nobody warned me that these tunes required work. phooey! ;D
Good job tackling this Andy- it's more than I can do right now. Maybe if you think hard about the triplet starting right on that ONE beat it'll come to you?
P,S. is that a little Menzies gourd on the wall?
Thanks everyone! As I was recording takes I think I figured out that it's a matter of how my wrist is tilted coming out of that syncopated 7th measure. If I pay attention to that it seems to come out OK. Strumelia: That is my Menzies gourd, a nice little player with a black walnut neck and Boucher style peghead. I keep it in A ("Rice") tuning and don't play it nearly often enough. If I get that triplet down maybe I'll post another version on the gourd!
