A Site Dedicated to all enthusiasts of Classic Style Banjo
Hi Steve-Thank you for all of your continued efforts....I'm looking forward to exploring all of your scores that you've arranged.
I searched here and did not find this "Alagazam" by Abe Holzmann, I think from 1902. The orig is on the auction site now cheap.
I'm supposing any ink that flowed from Abe's pen onto staff paper is likely worth a try......
Here is Grimshaw's arrangement...
Sorry for the false alarm, Steve!
Hi Chris, I do occasionally do arrangements of tunes that have already been arranged by someone else. I like to bring some of my own ideas into them and add my own annotation. Whenever I do, I try to avoid looking at the other score. You can never have enough arrangements of a good tune. I may yet have a look at this when time permits...Steve.
Thank you Joel !
I have added the score to the MUSIC LIBRARY
Maybe we should avoid the "Humorous Darky Text" !!
I understand, Steve, and again, i appreciate all of your efforts....you must be having fun doing this, but it does look like a lot of work as well....
Yeah Ian, when they put words to these they are TERRIBLE (and not just in the racist way-- they are just not good).
I have read the lyrics to Whistling Rufus-- bad.
I want to say I have found Darkies Dream once with lyrics added, also bad.
