"OH!  I see. When I created the measures using Musescore it hadn't occurred to me to write an intro.  I began composing the tune using Marc's rhythms and I quickly thought " this sounds like an intro". So I made those 4…"

"And the Ning Thing strikes again. After composing and posting my reply to Marc about 12 measures or 16 I went to the home page and it was back on Jan 17. Since Ning is likely to say it didn't happen, is the non-happening an example of these…"

"I thought I was creating the first 8 measures of a banjo solo which had several parts, each with 16 measures, like a typical 6/8 march. In front of the those 8 measures I put a 4 bar introduction based entirely on Alabama Marc's proposed…"

"you choosed 12 measures , Jody ......... ?"

Jody Stecher replied to Jody Stecher's discussion Start of new Banjo Solo : NING THING!
"Another question: did you mean for the first part of the tune to have only 12 measures instead of 16? The first 4 measures I wrote are the introduction. "

"I couldn't figure how to get Musescore software  to show the slides.  All the single notes sequences are slid up and down on the third string. The fingering indications in the first two measures after the intro are meant to show that…"

Trapdoor2 replied to Jody Stecher's discussion Start of new Banjo Solo : NING THING!
"I don't see a slide, Jody. Yes, there is a nice 3rd string 'thing'...but I see no directions for sliding around. I was more thinking along the lines of a 4th string "trombone gliss." Composerly duties: ya, I'm…"

Jody Stecher replied to Jody Stecher's discussion Start of new Banjo Solo : NING THING!
"I already put the slide/giide  in!  On the third string though. But sure, it can have a bass string solo as well. So why not compose it?  And a twiddly bit section.  It doesn't have to be brilliant. A phrase with a…"

Trapdoor2 replied to Jody Stecher's discussion Start of new Banjo Solo : NING THING!
"Yah, it begs to have a cool bass-string solo; something with a big "American" slide/glide and some typically British twiddly bits."

Jody Stecher replied to Jody Stecher's discussion Start of new Banjo Solo : NING THING!
"Are there no descendants of Alfred Committee willing to compose some more measures?  Come on, someone give it a try! Ning Thing longs to be completed."

Banjo Benches at San Francisco Airport!

 I was taking a flight out a new terminal at San Francisco the other day and was surprised and amused to see the shape of some comfortable new benches with a new shape.  Off topic because they look like plectrum banjos? No indeed, these are Zither Banjo Benches!  I'm afraid my mobile phone takes horrible quality pictures but at least the shape was captured. The wave of the future?

Jody, regarding the banjo I'm playing in my videos: that's one of Bob Flesher's "Cotillion" (12") models; my main axe for about 6 yrs. Thanks for the kind remarks, I've gone from archtop Stelling "shrill" to "tubby" over the years (in more ways than one!). I have a fiberskyn head on it, Aquila Nylgut strings and one of those Cole 5-footed bridges. I have a small collection of banjos but the Flesher gets all the playing time these days.

Thanks, Jody. Hope to be able to meet you over the Didmarton weekend.

I enjoyed meeting you at Backwell, and I am afraid that I assumed that you were a newcomer to Banjo, so please erase from your hard drive any superfluous and quite unnecessary advice. You don't need any encouragement either. I was the bass banjo at the end of the line, filling in the blanks, and wishing I could play better. So you see, you encorage me!

Thanks Jody, to add me as a friend, i am deeply  honored !

I would be to give you some piece of information about my banjos making, give me please your e-mail, mine is : eric.pat-luths@orange.fr .

About your music,  many people in France like bluegrass & old timey  music, and play it, there is many bands, many american banjo players come to France every  years to teach, and have many pupils, there is summer country festivals...i was myself a pupil of Tony Trishka in 1978 and and Ben Eldrige in 1982/83, but we can speak about it  by  mail. Classic banjo is  unknow or very few people know  this kind of banjo music.

Thank you Jody I enjoyed that. Nice to hear an original composition, but well beyond me yet as a beginner I'm afraid.

 

regards Pam

Thankyou for the info, that might explain why it is the only Cammeyer I have seen with the metal bands.
