LA MI LA MI LA,c'est ce qui est marqué sur la tombe d'un musicien qui était mort d'avoir trop mangé de pain de mie...dixit la mie l'a mis là...
J'ai pris contact avec tout ce petit monde, j'en connais déjà pas mal depuis un bail, les autres sont trés sympas.
Merci mon pote !
Hey, thanks! I like your version of the Morley too; I'll have to incorporate the octaves on the walkdown of the "D" section--sounds great. I'm doing my best to approximate William Ball's performance on that tune; have you heard it?
Hi Marc - I could not help but note that you were aware my father (Tom Barriball) played a "Clifford Essex Regal" banjo. How did you get to know my father? We, the family, have over more recent years lost an awful lot of photos and history in relation to our Father and my Brother in Leicester & I are trying to regain some of what has been lost. Anything you can tell me would be very much appreciated
I'm contemplating your family story and wondering. Was your great- grandfather in an isolated area? I haven't noticed a bouzouki shortage in Australia, at least not in the cities. If the five string banjo, which is about as far as a string instrument can get from a bouzouki in construction, sound, playing technique, appearance, etc is as close as he could get to a bouzouki he must have been very far indeed. Maybe it was the long neck that seemed similar (?)
Marc, I was looking at your arrangement for Sweet Corn by Weidt. In the original music, there is a key change from C to F at measure 56 that continues until the end of the song. In your piano arrangement, you maintain the key of C throughout the entire piece. I am curious why you did this? The partial 2nd banjo accompaniment also goes to F, however the rest of the song is not included in the download. I am trying to arrange the piece for my band but without the remaining 2nd part all I can rely on is your piano arrangement, which doesn't seem to be correct. Could you respond to me?
I notice that you mention the "partial 2nd banjo accompaniment" for Sweet Corn. There may be a bit of confusion as to how the score is laid out. I have added a couple of Coda phrase instructions to the score and you can now see that the whole 2nd banjo/guitar acc is, in fact, on that single page of the download.
I have also amended the MUSIC LIBRARY for this score download to contain the above page and Marc's updated, 3 page version, of the 1st banjo with piano accompaniment.
Marc, I am still having difficulty with your arrangement of Sweet Corn. The 1st and 2nd parts have 97 measures in them. Your arrangement differs greatly at measure 40. I think you are going to the wrong part- B instead of returning to A. Could you look at it again and confirm what I just said? I really would like the left hand piano part to be in keeping with the 1st and 2nd parts so I can convert it to a cello banjo part.
Hi Mark .My banjo just the same as yours .It is Clifford Essex co .I noticed when I took it a part to refurbish it there were four lines iiii on the perch pole with a line through the middle .I wondered what it was Any ideas .
