The 'search by composer' in 'Music Library' is showing the composers in a random order rather than alphabetical.  It may be a temporary glitch.Continue

Strings!

I'm looking for suggestions for nylon strings in medium gauge.  Andy Banjo has run out of stock (and closing down at end of month).  I bought some CE strings but they seem squeakier than usual.  Do…Continue

"Hi Carrie! I was wondering if you had a scan of this book? I wanted to see if there were any 6 or 7 string solo pieces. Thanks again and happy playing!"

"The only Douglas I know is one of the Piranha brothers... The only mention of "Flares and Flashes" I've seen is the title of one of her stage shows (which appear to have been of the variety type). No doubt it is in the JAT catalog. We…"

Romping Rossie (Madeline Rossiter, Classic-style banjo)

"Yes, it's been interesting finding out about her career - I imagine 'Romping Rossie' might have been one of her stage pieces.  I wonder if anyone has come across her 'Flares and Flashes March'!"

Ragging the Scale - Van Eps Banjo Orchestra

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sZYaoR-h6F8

A different version of Ragging the Scale than the one in the Original Recordings library marked as Van Eps Banjo Orchestra.  I wonder who the other musicians were - sounds like plectrum or tenor banjo.

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!
