For enthusiasts of early banjo
A demonstration of how I play this on banjo. This is a little rough.
Dave: I was hoping to play some fiddle with your 'C' accordeon at Antietam but you were gone before I had a chance. The next best thing, I guess, was playing along with your video posting.
Myron Floren (and his accordion) was a featured performer at my hometown county fair in 1966...I remember it!
Dave, I love your charming version! Seems to sit very well on that instrument, no finger gymnastics required. :) Bones would indeed be perfect with it!
Thanks. Al, sorry I left so soon. I was having some health issues and thought I'd better head home before things got worse. Next year.
Oh well, while we're at it... http://www.collectionscanada.gc.ca/obj/028011/f7/13364.mp3
Aaaahhh! Delightful, Wes! Are those nautical bones in the background? Canadian musicians? What year?
Yes, French Canadian, 1929 I just looked at the description I thought it was bones but they say catagnettes. http://amicus.collectionscanada.ca/aaweb-bin/aamain/itemdisp?sessio...
The first clip that Wes shared sounds like a cross between Jenny Lind Polka and National Schottische.
....the 'B' part of the former, the 'A' part of the latter.
