For enthusiasts of early banjo
Buckley tune from my corner of the world. Played on a Carver Banjos gourdie.
This is tuned to E ("true" minstrel tuning, no thanks to Briggs lol)...afterwards, I changed the the bridge and get a bit better sound, plus I like the string spacing better. The string height throws me off just a bit. I end up playing with my cuticle instead of the nail...who knows, I may post an "improved" version at some point.
ROB.....out of the gate strong my friend. Nice job.
It's just a fun tune!!!...plus it makes me work on those triplets, which are somewhere between a stroke and a strum. Sometimes I hit it just right. Gotta build the consistency...
That move is referred to as a "Long Combination" by Frank Converse. Let me know if you want to know more about that.
Of course!! I'll never turn down more knowledge!!
Now I gotta dig through my Converse books
Go to p. 92 of the Analytical 1886
He codified a folk idiom.
