So, I have a digital score of Stars and Stripes Forever, for piano solo (by the way, poor, as some parts are missing and could be done easily on a piano); but the thing is : the first page (cover)…Continue

"Well done steve ! That's exctly like Darktown strutter's ball tune and other from the epoque. The passage around 1915/1920 (or even earlier 1913). They played more fast "but with less notes". Of course improvisation and so on,…"

"Thanks Remi, Dave and Jody, I am not 100% familiar with the Zither Banjo, despite having owned one, eh Jody? I was far too heavy handed to play one. I agree that Remi needs a guitar banjo, but I have no objection to ragtime, and particularly Morley,…"

David Wade replied to Rémi's discussion Ziter Banjo-Banjo guitar ???
"Good explanation Ian, except generally it is the top tuner on the right which is omitted on the bottom one. I have a number of zither-banjos in full working order around £250 mark - available direct from me or at Rallies. However, I think our…"

Ziter Banjo-Banjo guitar ???

Hi everybody,I hope you're fine. As im a huge fan of ragtime/cakewalk/banjo music, trying to play some tunes on guitar sol, I want to ask a question. This is one of my dream to possess a banjo allowing me to play my guitar transcriptions on it. Indeed, your marvelous instrument is very specific, powerful and beautiful sounding, in any style. And I heard that Oakley was playing a ziter banjo, while I heard tht a ziter banjo was tuned like a guitar. So in my mind it's quiete possible to play the…See More

Welcome Rémi. I hope that you are going to give "Classic Style Banjo" a try!

I am sure that you would be a "Maestro" in no time at all :-))

Hi Rémi, Good to see that you like the website. There is a LOT to investigate on here!

Joe Morley was an amazing composer and it is good to see you playing his music.

One thing though... the style of banjo playing on this website is called "Classic Style Banjo", not "Classical".  

All the very best

Ian, thereallyniceman

Hi Ian, OK for the Classic word I get it now ! I m just listening to your versions of circus parade, uncle s tom cabin etc. It's really enjoyable. I began to arrange freckless, but I don't know if I will keep the G key; and there are so much to discover, as you say well.

Thank you and good afternoon !
