Joe Morley's "Zarana," dedicated to Curly Miller

"I have a Goldtone bass banjo, no much to it volume and tone wise until you plug it into a bass amp - nice substitute for bass guitar and goes well with a ceilidh band."

"Thank you for this.  I am not absolutely convinced about abandoning Old Faithful in its extreme old age, but it has a few cranky mannerisms which I could do without.  We shall see. Thank you"

Joe Morley's "Zarana," dedicated to Curly Miller

"In "Temptation Rag", Clarke Buehling is playing a Gold Tone "cello banjo", which has a shorter scale than most regular banjos (24-3/4"). They're still available from Gold Tone. Curly is in the hat, playing a…"

Joe Morley's "Zarana," dedicated to Curly Miller

"Can I ask what Curly is playing? It sounds like a cello banjo but isn't. It looks a bit like a guitar tuned banjo, but again I don't think it is. The frets look closer together than my cello banjo too, which should make the thing…"

Thank you for the kind comments Greg, I'm working on high-quality mp3 versions of the piano accompaniments which will be made available here. I really like your playing and the tone you get from your banjo.

Best,

Mike

Having those mp3s will be such a huge service for practicing, musicality, and playing with more than just a metronome! I can't wait to try them out!
