Ragging the Scale - Van Eps Banjo Orchestra

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sZYaoR-h6F8

A different version of Ragging the Scale than the one in the Original Recordings library marked as Van Eps Banjo Orchestra.  I wonder who the other musicians were - sounds like plectrum or tenor banjo.

Joy-Boy (1916)...A. J. Weidt.

Despite the rather uninspiring title, this a gem of a composition by AJW. As with many of his tunes, it was originally written for guitar. The piano score came from  issue 3, volume 1 of The Tuneful Yankee magazine, the online archive of which can…See More

Tickled To Death (1899)..Charles Hunter.

This is Hunter's first published rag, it has an unusual staccato syncopation brought about by the interplay between the RH and LH in the original piano score. I've arrived at a pretty close approximation for banjo but it is tricky to play. Listening…See More
