For enthusiasts of early banjo
Thanks to Ian Bell for introducing me to this tune from Septimus Winner's New American School for the Banjo, 1883. Ian's recent posting of it inspired me to learn it.
Yep, I'm gonna have to learn this one. Love the guitar and percussion. Percussion adds so much to these tunes.
Very enjoyable Paul!
I've never heard the aspirin bottle played better!
Perhaps we should start an Aspirin Bottle ning. ;)
Brilliant idea Al. I wonder if people would start to argue about the "authentic" way to play the aspirin bottle!
"Ibuprofen bottle?! Pfftt! For the real sound you have to play a genuine pre-war Bayer aspirin bottle."
Mine is a cheap modern plastic knock-off model, half-filled with Bayer-like aspirin:
Perhaps as the "Joel Sweeney" of the Aspirin Bottle percussion instrument, I should let you all know that I tended to use 81 mg, generic Aspirin......though, of course, innovations are inevitable and bound to become the new standard.
