Fretboard extensions

I'm in the market for a banjo with at least 24 or 25 frets. I've noticed fretboards extensions are usually only on professional instruments, with a few exceptions, which makes a lot of sense somewhat. I find if I had an…

"I don't much care for the piece, I am interested in the idea of A notation being printed in England. It is not hard to believe that it was simply a mistake. "

"I just thought that FVE would know best as he was alive at the time when the piece was popular. I don't know who composed it but both Durandeau and Laurendeau seem to be likely candidates unless it was written post 1893, in which year Durandeau…"

"Richard, does the FVE ms. have it right? Laurendeau sounds similar to Durandeau, but the former's first name was Louis-Philippe, while the published Ossman solo and piano acc. both cite as composer a Durandeau with first initials…"

Red Onion Rag (1912)....Abe Oleman

This is an example of classic ragtime from Oleman, it follows the standard ragtime formula but is none the less a good tune that works well on banjo. I've added my usual annotation which is the way that I play it but it's very much open to personal…See More

"LOL. While it might be for a 6 or 7 string, the tunings I know of for those don't go below G. gCDGBD or gGCDGBD. Easy enough to tune the 7-string down to get that A but... It appears to have no other notes that drop below D. I can't…"
