Ragtime Episode help!

Hello folks ... I hope you can help me. I'm having trouble with the Ragtime Episode tab I've got. I can't work out the fingering as it seems so fast! Do you pinch with the thumb and forefinger on the 2cnd bar or use the ring finger to maintain the speed?? I'm used to rolls on bluegrass and knowing how the fingering works but I really can't figure this one out. I don't expect to be as good as Rob Mackillop and others but any help would be most welcome. Thanks in advance!

Searching for a mazurka

Hi all!

Long time but believe me, I have been practicing a lot, so in the future I promise new videos. I have been working on new tunes and I also would like to learn a tune I watched on the Rob´s Youtube page...¿Someone might have the score of "Mazurka" (wihtout more names)? I was not able to find one in the music library. Also, I am open for suggestions for mazurkas.

Thanks for the help and as usual, all of you have posted amazing videos! Sometime I…

"Hi Mike!  World travel is a reasonable excuse though you could be confusing other countries with classic banjo playing. Anyway, glad you are well and hope to have you back to the banjo world soon."

Tom Boy (1907).. Rag march and two step.. W. B. Bradford.

This was suggested by Marc a short time back. He wasn't sure how it would sound on the banjo however his apprehension was unfounded. I had to arrange it in F/Bb to get it all to fit, other than that, it sounds just fine. Its's a good piece of…See More
