For enthusiasts of early banjo
From Howe's Complete Preceptor p7
Paul Draper has a nice version of this tune up on this site, though it seems to be a different source.
Yes. This is a really good one to look at. The Briggs has a version in the front of the book. It is lowered by a 5th, a few dactyl rhythms and chords thrown in, and you have a good banjo arrangement. I encourage everyone to study and play both versions.
I like the use of the fermatas ( what is the plural? ) in Howe's work, to me it feels a bit comic or playful, I may work on this a bit more maybe, sliding into those notes and double stopping them.
Yea, I added one more ( fermata ).
