Hello

I'd like to practice with classic banjo and in order to start I'd like to begin from these titles:

- In the mood

- Te Deum

- Yankee Doodle

Could you tell me where can I find these classic banjo scores?

I did not have time to look inside all tutor books, but I looked into music library and I didn't find them.

Is there a specialized online shop for these? I always find only piano scores or bluegrass tabs.

Thank you in advance

Sergio

You can find a very basic version of Yankee Doodle in this book...

I don't know what the other two are and do not recall ever seeing those titles listed in a book. 

I'm wondering if "In the mood" is "I'm in the mood for love", a jazz standard?

As far as I can tell, Te Deum is an old monastic chant. Would that transfer well to the banjo? It would be surprising in any case.

Thank you very much Joel

"In The Mood" was a Glenn Miller hit in 1940 and is a swing standard, not in the Classic Banjo tradition as discussed in this forum. The arpeggio introduction is often used in modern three-finger (bluegrass, etc.) teaching as it is a basic 'forward roll'.

I listened thos two titles on Classic Banjo Jukebox:

- Te Deum - Played by: Marc Dalmasso Composed by: Marc A. Charpentier

- In the Mood - Played by: Tom Barriball Composed by: Joe Garland

Sorry, my previous reply was a tad terse (I have limited access during the work day). "In The Mood" by Tom Barriball is his rendition of the Glen Miller hit of the 1940's. I have no idea if it was ever notated.

I tend to think of "Classic Banjo" in the terms of a historical period, roughly music written between the 1870's and the 1930's...which eliminates "swing" (such as "In The Mood"). However, there is nothing written in stone as to what you can or cannot play using the techniques of the style. Tom Barriball being a great example of that. Many other players wander off into other pastures as well. Nothing wrong with that.

That said, you will more easily find modern Tab for "In The Mood" via internet search. I found several videos and some Tab on the Banjohangout.

"Te Deum" was arranged for the banjo by Marc Dalmasso and he's a member here. You should 'friend' him and then ask him directly for his arrangement. Very pretty stuff! Again, not exactly "Classic Banjo" (again, my opinion) but closer to "Classical" played on the banjo. No matter, it would be a nice piece to learn.

Thank you very much, I'll follow your indications
