Sidewalks of New York (Frank Bradbury)

A couple of months ago I watched this amazing video (digitally edited) of New York in 1911, and I just couldn't resist to mix it with "Sidewalks of New York"...

""Country Dance" is a genre. It doesn't mean a dance done by rural people. The term may be derived from the French  "contredance" indicating a line of couples facing each other. The music for country dancing/contra…"

""Old Pennyroyal" sounds suspiciously like an old fiddle tune. I'd look in either Ryan's Mammoth collection or O'Neill's for the tune. Well played, neat to associate it with a silent cartoon. Thanks! And, of course, Joel…"

Searching for a mazurka

Hi all!

Long time but believe me, I have been practicing a lot, so in the future I promise new videos. I have been working on new tunes and I also would like to learn a tune I watched on the Rob´s Youtube page...¿Someone might have the score of "Mazurka" (wihtout more names)? I was not able to find one in the music library. Also, I am open for suggestions for mazurkas.

Thanks for the help and as usual, all of you have posted amazing videos! Sometime I…

A new tune?

Hi all,

In my last video I said that I am focusing in exercises to improve my left hand technique. However, I would no like to dismiss the fun (and the importance) of learn new tunes. Because I am working on the fingering of the frets in the middle part of the neck, I would like to know about easy tunes which use those frets. Any suggestion? :

The girls in the band

Some days ago I watched on youtube the trailer of a documentary called "The girls in the band" (http://www.thegirlsintheband.com/home/). It is about the experiences of several female musicians in the major jazz period (30-60´s). Of course, they suffered a lot of discrimination despite their talent and skills.

Therefore I would like to know if you have an idea of similar situations in the golden era of banjo. Because the time…

I share you a dissertation about music of the early XX here in Colombia (The author, is Colombian too). Despite it is in Spanish, you can find some pictures with Colombian banjo players!...I will let you know if I can find those banjos!.…

Hi German, this is probably the only Joplin tune I haven't yet arranged, leave it with me and I'm sure I can come up with something playable...Steve.
