Bandurand Polka (1877)

Charley's Schottische (1877)

The Lily Mazourka (1868)

G. Swain Buckley's Celebrated Minor Jig - Dedicated to S. Thalberg (1868)

Videoed these before but on a fretted banjo. Not easy, but fun, on a fretless.

Very nice!  The 'B' part of Bandurand Polka seems to be common in several other tunes.......Flying Cloud Schottische, for one.

Wonderful Rob!  Great way to start my day!

Nice. Charley's ? Is this from the Dobson Book?

Love all those tunes. Well played....it fits your elegant styling.

Thanks, guys. That's Dobson 77, not Buckley. That's what happens when you record straight after breakfast...

Don't know Flying Cloud Schottische
