For enthusiasts of early banjo
Calabash Dance played on a reproduction minstrel banjo, tuned EAEG#B. I used this tuning as it is the one listed in the Converse book.
Hey, nice one Tom! I'm liking the tone of your banjo. Is that the banjo you'll be taking to Sweeney?
Strum, since this is the only banjo I have I wll be taking it to Sweeny. I will also have my bones and I am toying with the idea of bringing my bodhran as well.
The three thumbs are actually written as two shorts and a long.
Hmm, my old eyes (and ears) didn't catch that, thanks Strum. I will go back and relearn the end. I like to try to follow the music as close as I can. Pleanty of time for experimentation with variations once the printed version is learned.
I think it is always good practice to give the written version the benefit of the doubt. Try it, as it gives you some insight as to the practice of the day.
