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…

Robert Parker, sound engineer

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Parker_(sound_engineer)

"Yes! That is it. I thought the spacing was what made it a "Morley" bridge. The pattern is slightly different than the "standard" but not by much."

"Hi Joel, Sorry I don't know if the "new" CE Morley bridges are spaced as the old ones. Here is a "Morley" bridge from the 1970's.  It is a bit beaten up but still works well!   I assume the wider gap is for…"

"Hi Ian, do they make the "Morley" bridges exactly like the originals or do they space the strings evenly?"

Scott Joplin's New Rag (1912)

This is one of Joplin's tunes that is probably least suited to banjo, never the less, I've put together an arrangement that does work pretty well. I've worked out a suitable fingering method that works for me and added plenty of fret numbers and…See More
