"Aaron, if we ever have another rally we should keep a copy of this for "sight reading" fun.  If you explore A notation there is a HUGE volume of just this sort of thing. These easy pieces seem to me to be social music.  Get…"

"Cool! It sounds so much better live, as expected. Sometimes a piece just doesn't work well when played by a robot. I can apply all sorts of complicated compensations to make it better but I've found that it just isn't worth the effort…"

"I thought it might be Stewart's or Weston's... It was nearly a national holiday here in the 19th Cent. (famous in song, fiddle tunes, etc). I wonder if Stewart felt any connection. It was the first melodic style banjo tune I learnt."

It's a nice book with duets (and piano) and bios of the composers. Composers are from many different countries and time periods.

are beginning to show signs of life.  Stay safe, stay well.  Regards, Becky
