For enthusiasts of early banjo
John Diamond's Walk Around, from the Phil Rice banjo tutor of 1858, played by Paul Draper on a Moschella gourd banjo.
Paul, this is absolutely terrific!! My very fave of all your videos now.... love love love it, and so PERFECT on the gourd.
Really nice, and I love the backing track. These timing on some of these tunes in the Rice Book are so rich and varied; the melody is more or less the same as 'Camptown Hornpipe' in Briggs but it becomes a whole different thing here.
great recording, and a sweet sounding gourd banjo
Hi Ian - Jay reenforced the interior of the gourd with resin, which really boosts its resonance. It seems to sound best in A/E.
Still my favorite one from your vids! The percussion is the perfect icing on the cake. :)
