apart from Clarke Buehling playing this lovely tune on Youtube I can not find any mention of it anywhere and, I have searched, anybody know anything about this tune please ?

Poo. I forgot to mention the errata. I correct M7's rhythm (which left one with too few beats). Fortunately, the measure was (correctly) repeated again after the TRIO, so I just matched that.

M32 was missing its triplet markings.

Not too bad. I've seen much worse printer's errors.

Aaack. I missed the accent marks in M62-64. I'll fix for the next upload.

this is quick work indeed Marc, well done, I would love to see a tab of this if you ever get time :-)

He said he thinks La Bella 17s, that is what he uses.

A very sweet sounding banjo Clarke is playing in that clip, Joel do you know if he is using the ultra thin strings you and John speak so highly of ? as far as can be seen they look quite heavy to me, difficult to see though, great sounding banjo just the same.

Very early there was G notation, lower than A. What/where/when is "D notation?"

Thanks alot for this topic.

I find it difficult, timewise, to be fluent in all notations;C notation, A notation and D notation (are there more??).

Up until now, all the things I have looked at in A and D notation have been fairly simple, meaning the amount of notes and accidentals, so I have been able to sort of translate it in my head to C notation while playing. To be really fluent in one notation, just like languages, I think it is important to not translate from one notation to the other, if you know what I mean.

There is so so many interesting topics concerning the banjo and so little time! I wish I had started playing the banjo 25 years ago, or more...

The question after the piece is funny, I think:

"Is it an expensive thing to get into, playing banjo?"

"No...uhm.."

Well, I guess that depends :-)

thanks Joel, lovely sounding banjo .

Here's the separate sheets for 1st and 2nd banjo...and an mp3 of the duo.

Nick, I have the tab almost done...but there are some minor changes to the original fingering that I want to incorporate...since I usually make the tab per my own fingering choices.

Hey that is great Marc, I did not mean to "shove" you at all but, thank you for your help .

No problem, Nick. Sometimes I need a kick rather than a shove!

I just spent 30min on the front porch playing this. Still not quite sure about some of those 8th-note (quaver) arpeggios. The video of Clarke playing doesn't really show those spots very clearly but it looks like I have them written out pretty closely to what he is doing. They're a bit awkward...but the reality is that they simply just take practice!

Thanks, Nick, for putting this one on my radar.  It is a nice waltz.  Most waltzes from the A notation era can be pretty anemic.  This one has some fun “runs”.

I thought it had something of the old Austrian about it when I first found it, old Johann and, his son would have approved !

Ok, here's the tab. I followed all the position markings from the original but as there is nothing specific about some sections, I made those work for me. ;-)

Of course, I welcome commentary, recommendations, etc. I often cannot see the forest for the trees, so...

Marc, this is great and will help me to struggle through this tune supplementing my own efforts, your help is very greatly appreciated.
