For enthusiasts of early banjo
Lazy Joe (Jig) from Buckley's Banjo Guide (1868). Played on a fretless gourd banjo.
It's interesting how this tune alternates between syncopated phrases, and non-syncopated phrases. The syncopated parts seem more strident, as though someone is ordering Lazy Joe to get moving, but Joe replies with his lazy-sounding straight timing. Good tune for a lazy day!
That's just beautiful Bob...those long slides like pouring water... !
Thanks. I wanted to try close mic'ing, and it reproduced the tone very well.
Slides, whether in stroke style or OT or whatever...are like really good chocolate. A few tastes are a wonderful delicacy, a plateful can make you feel ill.
