Devil-May-Care (Olly Oakley)

I have been enjoying listening to the Olly Oakley collection 'Banjo, Burlesque and Bolero'.  On the zitherbanjo.org.uk site there is mention of a tune he composed called 'Devil-May-Care' but,…Continue

Outdoor banjo

I keep hearing that skin-head banjos (and also nylon strings) are weather sensitive.  I haven't noticed this living in a temperate English climate but I wonder if playing outdoors in Autumnal weather…Continue

A banjo recital (2018)

"Hey German, great to see you back! A lovely start to Sunday morning listening to your playing.  An interesting selection of tunes: I had forgotten how much I like Reckless Rufus.  The waltz by Carulli is also very pretty."

"Actually, I did report this one to Ebay - this has backfired as now I am getting 'PRICE LOWERED - be quick!' emails whenever the price is lowered!  Not - quite - tempted.  "

carrie horgan replied to david caron's discussion Advice : What should I be looking for in a banjo?
"The tackhead wouldn't be my first choice as the action may be high.  You really want a fully-fretted, full-scale 5string banjo.  You could look at a used Deering goodtime and replace the tailpiece with a no-knot/tie-on tailpiece and a…"

Hello again...and some playlists

I have been a way for a while - I got distracted trying to learn some AJ Weidt pieces on the tenor banjo - but I now have the itch to start playing the 5-string banjo again.   

I thought I'd share some Playlists I created on YouTube for Sunday listening/watching: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLb6ujCgXt0SQrmdTyZ3WOJqLe2h2HxeYJ

Here is another one which is more ragtime…

The Bell Chimes

A pretty little tune - this is the Herbert J Ellis version (but with the Dobson intro).  Hope you like this one, Ian (our resident Bell Ringer)

Edit by Ian:

I have added a Music player for Carrie's recording.

Very nice indeed Carrie, and a nice sounding banjo too. You sound better than my Handbell Ringing Team…

Hello Carrie, Just watched your video, playing "The Jubillee".
Your playing sounds very tasteful on my old Stewart Banjeurine,
I recently sold it to Kevin @ Findajo !
Regards-Keith

Hi Carrie,

I have really enjoyed playing stroke style from the Briggs' book on my tackhead but I'm finding the classic style much more satisfying, even at this very early stage. I'm taking it very slowly, working from 'Ellis's Thorough School' and as I'm retired, I have plenty of time to practice. I really do appreciate your offer of help.

If you, or any fellow players live near me and might fancy meeting up occasionally, please message me. I live near Eastbourne, East Sussex. I also travel to Oxfordshire every couple of weeks for a camping weekend so I could make a brief detour.

Best wishes, Ian.
