For enthusiasts of early banjo
In the spirit of, but off the beaten path of Minstrelsy. Early Cajun music, adapted from Blind Uncle Gaspar c.1929.
I'm not sure. I got it from this:

Thanks. I'm studying the background comping. It provides such a crazy backdrop for the melody. I'm at the point where I don't feel certain if this stuff is set, or there is some randomness to the harmonization.
I suspect the harmonization would usually be dependent on who happened to sit down with a guitar that day, and how they felt about it. Unless the tune is something that Uncle Gaspar and his buddy put together themselves.
Delma Lachney is the fiddle player, Blind Uncle Gaspard guitar-- they are considered Cajun (rather than Creole). Maybe the changes aren't random but there is a certain amount of shifting and inconsistency that consistently takes place.
