One for the smokers...

I am really enjoying reading the old BMG's.  Apparently the staff of BMG were very impressed with this 'ingenious device' and bought a stockpile to sell to readers for a shilling each (BMG 1918 05) -…Continue

Most Popular Classic Banjo Tunes

I'm interested in what were the most popular classic banjo tunes during the golden age of classic banjo (1880s to 1920).  I am particularly interested in tunes written specifically for the banjo.  I…Continue

I'm going on holiday to Kent in a few weeks and noticed on Ebay that there is a Zither banjo near where I am staying.  I wondered what you make of the condition of the fretboard - the inlays are good…Continue

Zither Banjo: An Irish Phantasy by Cammeyer - Rob MacKillop

"Well, Rob, it's hard to judge it really - the Houghton had the wrong strings and high-ish action but am sure it will be a good ZB once properly set-up.  I will post updates. "

Zither Banjo: An Irish Phantasy by Cammeyer - Rob MacKillop

"Lovely Rob - very pretty tune; almost like a chord melody arrangement.  I thought 'this sounds familiar' and then realised it is on the Clive Palmer 'Banjoland' album.  I have taken the Houghton zither banjo to The…"

"Hi there - I am not a teacher so hopefully others will offer advice but I do think the Ellis book would be good as it offers parts for first and second banjo - you could accompany the student and then the student could accompany you.  I also…"

Zither Banjo: Cammeyer: Cornish Dance No 1 - Rob MacKillop

Joe Morley - Magnolia Walz

"Well done - that is a feat of memorisation!  I find with classic banjo tunes with different parts that it is hard to keep the pace going - I tend to slow down and speed up.  When I get my zither banjo I am going to try and find some…"

Hello again...and some playlists

I have been a way for a while - I got distracted trying to learn some AJ Weidt pieces on the tenor banjo - but I now have the itch to start playing the 5-string banjo again.   

I thought I'd share some Playlists I created on YouTube for Sunday listening/watching: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLb6ujCgXt0SQrmdTyZ3WOJqLe2h2HxeYJ

Here is another one which is more ragtime…

The Bell Chimes

A pretty little tune - this is the Herbert J Ellis version (but with the Dobson intro).  Hope you like this one, Ian (our resident Bell Ringer)

Edit by Ian:

I have added a Music player for Carrie's recording.

Very nice indeed Carrie, and a nice sounding banjo too. You sound better than my Handbell Ringing Team…

Hello Carrie, Just watched your video, playing "The Jubillee".
Your playing sounds very tasteful on my old Stewart Banjeurine,
I recently sold it to Kevin @ Findajo !
Regards-Keith

Hi Carrie,

I have really enjoyed playing stroke style from the Briggs' book on my tackhead but I'm finding the classic style much more satisfying, even at this very early stage. I'm taking it very slowly, working from 'Ellis's Thorough School' and as I'm retired, I have plenty of time to practice. I really do appreciate your offer of help.

If you, or any fellow players live near me and might fancy meeting up occasionally, please message me. I live near Eastbourne, East Sussex. I also travel to Oxfordshire every couple of weeks for a camping weekend so I could make a brief detour.

Best wishes, Ian.

Hi Carrie.

I started a msg to you, but my finger hit a button somewhere...away it went. You mentioned you liked City Point Jig. If you would like a copy I can send it or post it on this site somewhere. It's in "A" notation. Clarke

Thanks for the kind words, Carrie! I'm really enjoying getting to know this music so far!
