One of the minory, jiggery, 'characterisitic' pieces from the dawn of the published banjo repertoire, of which there are many. This is interesting for being Dallas' first published banjo solo.
It is also interesting for being composed by Alf Wood, who was part of the Pierrot Troupe organised by Will Pepper; Wood also played with the Moore and Burgess Minstrels at St. James' Hall. He was reputed to be the equal of Joe Morley as regards his playing abilities. He spent some time in the U.S.A. in the 1890s.

Richard, I have to say I'm impressed with the quality of your scans.


May I ask how you get such clean scans?  Mine always seems dark and murky in comparison.


Any tips appreciated.

My scanner is just a very cheap Epson DX7450 combined printer/scanner/copier, the only probelm I have had with it is that, when I scan music, it seems to want to scan it one line at a time resulting in five scans or more, for one page. I avoid this by turning off 'autoscan' and scanning in the 'professional mode' whatever that is - I am no computer expert so just push the buttons until the machine does what I want.

Fair enough! :)

Thanks for the reply.

Try drawing a heavy black line down one edge of a piece of paper and put it behind the sheet music so the line is visible. The scanner will follow that line to the end. That's how I deal with reluctant scans.

Thanks for the tip on taming the scanner Claude.
