Wow, this site is too good to simply lurk. I just signed up. I've been playing 5 string banjo for just over 50 years, having started at age 11 on a fretless Gatcomb. I've only been playing Classic banjo for about 5 years. I'm a slow note reader and sometimes I come up against what seem to me to be unlikely notes or fingering indications. Sometimes it's obvious that there has been a misprint but sometimes I'm just not sure. A case in point: I'm learning Paul Eno's Valse De Concert. Does anyone know if in the next to last measure of the intro, (one measure before the rapid descent) the "A" reverts to natural from flat? It had been flattened in the previous measure and there's no indication that it goes back to natural. It sounds odd either way. The A-s in the swooping descent in the last measure of the intro sound even odder as A flat.
A second question: does anyone know when Joe Morley composed A Banjo Revel? Or when it was published? It's the only Morley piece published by Larking (Larking's Banjo Budget No.1) and there's no date on the music. It's a very neat piece of music, very banjo-like and redolent with Morley-isms. It sounds as though it may have been the prototype for Banjoland.
Thanks in advance and best wishes to all,
