"Thank you. When I get it playing, I'll try to get a video up. It unfortunately Might not be in the classic style. I'm still learning the classic style, but I can play a lot of the earlier stroke (Minstrel) style."

"Funnily, I'd forgotten about that one...and that copy is from my collection! Interestingly enough, the early Tab writers somehow were more interested in showing which notes were found on open strings and which were "closed" (or…"

"Ian, it's possible that we were briefly divided by a common language. The operative word here is "another".  I used the word to mean "in addition" rather than "instead of".  As in "let's have…"

"The only tab method book I know of is the one David Caron mentioned: 'The Fingerstyle Banjo and How to Play It' by Alan Middleton (in  notation and tab).  I would say it is a bit 'dry' - not enough tunes.   If you…"

"1) Yes, and put your left hand fingers down in the indicated chord position all at once. Don't wait for each note to appear on the page. It makes all the difference in the world for coherent and flowing playing. 2)  Ian, "broken…"
