As I mentioned, I combed back through my playlists on youtube to see what I left out. I found about 5 or 6 from the Converse Analytical (banjo style section) that I forgot. One of them is the about the first one after the introduction of the Combination Exercises. "Rattlesanke Jig". As I look closely at it, it is obviously close to the Buckley Version (1860). It is very specifically fingered, using the Combinations. It seems to be awkward at first, but it transforms itself into something amazing as I "get it" under my fingers. It (in my mind) is sort of a key to unlocking the mystery of this style, and differentiating between this style (whatever you call it) and the lighter, lilting, rhythmically moving groove of Clawhammer. It is almost like a "binary" approach, where the hand is either up or down, and finding the ideal placement for combination moves. Done mechanically, it is a stiff and unpleasant feel and sound...get it going, and you are really in to something else...really different. Then I look back, and actually see most of the same right hand markings in Buckley, but I see them in a different way having followed the black lines of the Combination markings in the 1887 book.
I will do a video study on this, to take a close look at what the right hand does. You ought to try this...seems simple, but it's really different. Lay it down and plant the thumb the way the book describes.
