Good one. Nice playing Paul. I think the Stroke tunes are really great in the 1886. Interesting that he took the time to choose, notate, and finger these pieces for a style so out of vogue at the time. Must have thought it was important. Interesting choices. He touches on almost all song styles and techniques in that section. Quite deliberate.

Thanks Tim. I like the banjo style pieces in that book - they have lots of interesting figures, lots of movement. I really should try it again on one of my fretted instruments from that time period.  I think it would sound snappier.

I love the Skirtlifters' version of this - trumpet, banjo and guitar
