For enthusiasts of early banjo
From Frank Converse's ANALYTICAL BANJO METHOD, 1886
nice, it's a fancier git up in de morning?
Many in the banjo section of the Analytical are reworked. A really interesting study to see the the refinement of...and not the radicalization of...the earlier style.
@Tim I actually gave you're analytical playlist a listen yesterday and did note the evolution of many tunes. In one video you did this sort of chop/slap across all the strings that created a strum sound. I tried a few times last niight to no avail but it looks fancy :)
Have to watch some of those ascending passages. Many are measured time, but some are nail glides all the way up. They often become confused and end up as all nail glides.....but the challenge is to keep even measured time on those.
You'll hear a lot of the things that one guy played on the wax cylinder from the turn of the century...I forget his name. the Reb....
Nice job Paul. :)
So, this strikes me as actually BEING 'GitUpInTheMornin'...with a few fancy fingerings thrown in. I have to wonder then- did Converse present this as a different tune?...and if so, did he claim himself as the composer? That would strike me as pretty over the top if so.
Over the top..under the strings...and all around. Stake your claim ladies and gentlemen. May the best title win. There are SO many doubled titles...even without so much as a shift of a note. Here at least....he twists it a bit.
From my observation, this work is a culmination and summary of all the major tune "types" found 30 years ago.
