A Site Dedicated to all enthusiasts of Classic Style Banjo
A few weeks ago, I was browsing through a tutor that somebody posted online. I can't remember if I stumbled upon it here or in an archived discussion on the Banjo Hangout.
Anyway, I had made myself a mental note to check it out in the future, but I can't at all remember the name.
All I remember seeing was a piece called something along the lines of Mississippi River Boat.
Does this ring a bell?
Was it a stroke style tutor or a "guitar style" (up-picking ) tutor? One piece that comes to mind is Mississippi Bubble but it is not the sort of banjo solo one usually finds in a printed tutor.
I was wayyy off, but I found what I was looking for, https://archive.org/details/ArmstrongCrownBanjoMethod
The piece in question is Dance on the flat boat. And in A notation
Funny you should mention that one. It is already on the list. Armstrong was an excellent and tuneful composer, I almost always enjoy his pieces. I recently did "The Mountain Stream Polka" from that book and have several others from it on the "to do" list. IIRC, Joel has recommended this tutor for learning A notation.
I've got three pieces from the Langey tutor keyed in, ready to clean up and post (in C notation and Tab) and then I'll get back to the Armstrong. Of course, if you see something else you like...let me know and I'll put it on the list.
