Nice play, Julian. This song makes me happy always! I hope to play it this year!
I suppose anxiety is the ultimate goal to beat! I have dozens of beta versions from the amateur playings that I have shared here.
Yes i can hear it ; not a problem , the tune is quasi perfectly played ; bravo , you are a classic banjo player . I think that playing automaticly without bum notes or any problems is only the experience , playing & playing again . Like used to say Ian in some older post , playing economicaly with the fingers and i would say playing economicaly with your brain ; so have the best LH fingerings up to each player & memorize it ; for me the problem isn 't the Bj_ technic but the memory ; if i do not play a song for a long time , i will forget it ; and if i don 't play enough , i will forget some parts only ( while i ' am playing , i have to think in advance what i have to play further in the tune and i could have a " black hole " ) ; well plaled , julian
Very good Julian, much better than me! I hope that the video helped with RH fingering. Sorry about me neglecting a section on "how to stare out the video camera", but I haven't worked out how to do it myself yet.
Bum notes??? I thought that it was just your musical interpretation of the piece :-)
well done Julian. You have a nice touch . how long have you been playing banjo. I also learnt this one from Ian and its in my every day practice . Nice guitar.regards Alan
Hi Alan, i only returned to the banjo about 3 months ago after problems with my nails made playing the classical guitar temporarily impossible. Ive owned my banjo for a few years but neglected it in favor of the guitar. I learned a couple of blue grass tunes but then put it down.
Ian - liar, liar pants on fire !! ive heard you play so your comments only serve to highlight the fact that you are a gentleman indeed.
David & Marc, thanks for your comments. In the wee small hours when im sat on my own i can play without mistakes ! Or if my wife is listening, i can play ok. It just seems that i become overly aware when i know im being recorded. Its not something i have ever thought about until i started to film myself playing. It certainly makes you appreciate the performance of professional musicians when they get up in front of a TV camera and play without errors.
Well done! Even though Sunflower Dance has a reputation as the "Cripple Creek" of Classic banjo it can be very tricky, sp. the third part!
Don't worry about the bum notes... you will seldom hear a Classic style piece played exactly the same way twice in the old recordings. Olly Oakley was notorious for the "variations" he sprinkled into all his performances! It's all good.
