For enthusiasts of early banjo
" Song of the week" = SONG OF THE MONTH for Nick :)
Kinda rough but getting there. Great song for working up the neck and back.
Keep em coming Tim! What's next?
Well done Nicholas! I like the somewhat dry and hollow resonant tone of that banjo. :)
Yea man, nice going. I knew you would show up pretty soon...ha ha. keep up the good work. You like it up high??
Sounds good! Maybe at some point we should give equal time to the South and look at Wade Hampton's Hornpipe of or General Longstreet's Reel from Ryan's.
Thanks Tim, that was an interesting song, really made me have to let go of the fear of jumping up and down the neck quickly. still have a ways to go. Good stuff though.
Thank you sir may I have another!
Yea! Want to stay off the grid, or pull one out of the tutors?
Wes I would love to get a copy of" Wade Hampton's Hornpipe". I am in a reenacting unit out here, and it is The Hampton Legion Company G "Claremont Rifles". That would be an appropriate song to learn indeed.
Let me know.
It is a 13" Jay Moschella. Got a sweet low end punch.
Well, I looked at it, and Wade Hampton's in Ryan's would be a challenge. it is written in Bb, so our arranging skills and concepts will be needed. Look it over...and the 2 or 3 that want to should dig in. Certainly possible...as are nearly all fiddle tunes.
Yep! I found it. Well to be honest I was shooting to get this learned on the fiddle as well. So I'm half way there. This one might be difficult for me to figure out on banjo... maybe not. Will see if I can even get it going on the fiddle well enough to give it credit.
Still open for a new tune suggestion!
It's a tune that showed up in the Empire hornpipe collection out of Scotland in the late 1880's and is still played today in some Irish Session circles, often in G. This is from the Empire collection. Personally I wood do it in A and tune the banjo up a half step if I was playing with a fiddler. I think I have in G somewhere, I'll post it when I find it.
