A Site Dedicated to all enthusiasts of Classic Style Banjo
I'm looking for some information about A.J. Weidt.
I've been making my way through his banjo compositions, and some of the videos on here have been a great help!
I was wondering what information people have about him, there seems to be very little on the net.
Also, does anyone have a comprehensive list of his banjo works?
also Songs & studies available there in PDF ; may be , you already have it
Actually, I know very nothing beyond his short bio that Hal Allert has on: A.J.WEIDT
His music...well, he was a very 'comfortable' composer (by 'comfortable', I mean his tunes are generally very playable, well arranged, often something you'll find yourself whistling the next day), his 2nds are often solos in themselves, quite lyrical.
I don't think I've run across any of Weidt's compositions which might fall into the "difficult" or "virtuosity required" category...something I find refreshing.
Thank's guys. I guess I'll have to keep looking for info.
Does anyone know of any early recordings of anyone playing his tunes?
