For enthusiasts of early banjo
Played on a Clifford Essex open backed banjo, here is a medley of five tunes arranged by the famous Joe Morley for Classic Style Banjo. Please excuse the cut...
Hi to all you Minstrel Banjophiles.
I run the Classic Banjo Ning site and recently we have had the pleasure of Tim Twiss playing for us. So in return I thought I would pop over here and post a video for your amusement. I hope that it does not break the rules as it is not played Minstrel style as I only play Classic Style, but I chose a medley of old time tunes that I thought may be appropriate, as long as it doesn’t start any more unpleasantness between the North and the South!
John welcomed me here and said that there was no dress code on your site, whereas we on Classic Banjo like to keep up appearances and do have a strict dress code!!!!
But I decided I would dress casually for your video, and have even worn an old bow-tie. I trust that I don’t appear too under-dressed.
I hope that you enjoy the piece. Please excuse the cuts between pieces but this is compiled from a number of lesson videos, which are being prepared to teach the playing of Classic Style solos.
Thanks! --great and enjoyable playing up and down the neck. Minstrel banjoists DO have a dress code -- our coat lapels must suffice as spare napkins and our shirt collars must tickle the ear lobes! Don't worry too much about annoying the sections, it's been done before...Marching through Georgia is a great piece right up there with I'm A Good Ol' Rebel!
