For enthusiasts of early banjo
In light of the global warming situation I have decided to only play in the "hybrid" style from now on.
Very nice, Carl. Having learned this from Flesher's tab, I totally missed the hybrid thing.
Thanks, Paul. I love tab as well as proper notes but this is one example of the down side of tab. See you in a few weeks!
Not totally a fault of tab.....you can (and should) still cross reference sources.
Extra note....just saying that the original text sometimes has some verbage that is valuable....such as this instance. Also, even with the Rosetta, you can be certain you got the right notes.
Ah yes, there it is plain as day, Converse's note: "Use the 'Guitar Style' for the chords, and the regular 'Banjo Style' [,,,] in executing the single notes." Thanks for pointing this out.
I mix in fingerstyle for executing ascending arepeggios on adjacent strings....many spots like that especially in Buckley material.
Sounds so good Carl. After hearing you play I really want to try and learn this one. Thanks for putting it up.
Carl: What is the "hybrid" style?
Roberta, Hybrid style combines "stroke" picking (banjo style) and "up" picking (guitar style) in the same tune. Frank Converse describes it in a very few tunes. It's not a major thing, although some of us (TT) use it to great effect these days.
