For enthusiasts of early banjo
A rough rendition of Union Jig from Buckley's Banjo Guide (1868). Not my best, but it had been forever since I recorded anything.
Very nice, love the feel .
Andy, I have heard the tune before but hearing your video made me want to learn it.
I think I have it down to some degree but can you of give me the four descending chords that you use to finish the tune? I have Cm, Bbm, Am, and Gm, but I'm not sure they feel/sound right.
On second thought, perhaps they are Cm, Gm, G7, Gm (????)
I really need to learn to take more time/care before responding. I confusing myself with modern-day tuning. I'm guessing it's Cm, Gm, D7, Gm, with the second Gm using the open 4th string instead of fretted on the 3rd fret.
I'm not sure what the chords work out to, but it basically walks down, alternating between the 4th and 1st strings:
So in "Briggs" dGDF#A tuning (which is what I used in the clip) the descending notes on the 4th string would be C, A#, A, G and on the 1st they're D#, D, C, A#. I think.
