A Site Dedicated to all enthusiasts of Classic Style Banjo
Wouldn't you know it. After announcing the new website to all of you, the computer that I am using to stream the music decided to die. Period. I am porting over the radio station to another computer and should be up and running by the end of the day.
As they say in the radio biz, "Stay Tuned!"
Hello everyone. Well, I have finally published my Internet Radio Station, Classic Banjo Radio. It streams 24/7 and has players for iTunes, Android, and Blackberry. There are at present approximately 500 pieces that I have cleaned up. Some of them still sound like crap but you should have heard the originals. Thanks to Ian for letting me tap into the Banjo DJ. I will be cleaning those up as well. And Jody contributed quite a few…Continue
I am having difficulty notating a triplet in one of my songs. I was hoping someone could give me a little help. The measure has a pickup triplet of 3 sixteenth notes.

You are invited to take the PDF files from the Yahoogroup listserve and add them to your library. You can take any of them for that matter. Maybe if others see how quickly your library is growing, they will contribute as well.
In an earlier post we were discussing how each of us files his/her music in their own library. Most of the music we have is a copy of the original with some exceptions. I would like to know if any of you have given thought to your libraries and their continued existence after you are gone. I, for one, have a large library that I have been adding to over the years and I am concerned that when I die my library will just be thrown away with no thought as to its value. But, is there any value…Continue
I just posted Georgia Grind on the Classic Banjo Yahoo Group site. The parts include 1st, 2nd, cello, and 3rd or piccolo. The music is in TIF format for ease in converting. If you are looking for any other orchestrated pieces, let me know.

I am happy to say that my website is up and running. You can now access the music store, the podcasts, and all the reference material on the site.
Thanks for your patience during this time, especially the kind words from some of the members.
