Clifford Essex professional

Anyone know what the 20fret Clifford Essex Professional scale length is and did they make an 11 inch pot version?  I'm doing some 'looking-into' banjos with a shorter-scale than standard.Continue

"Oh, okay thanks Jody.  I think Jazzbo was also a slang term for a sharply dressed black man.  "

carrie horgan replied to Aaron Jonah Lewis's discussion Jacko On Parade
"I think it refers to a military parade.  I'm English and Jacko doesn't have any connotations for me apart from as a nickname for Jack.  Hopefully, it's not a racial slur (Rastus on Parade, Jazzob's Holiday...)"

"Nice video.  Have you come across The Seaside Follies?  Not a banjo troupe but they are harking back to the idea of Pierrot seaside entertainers https://seasidefollies.co.uk/"

Jody Stecher replied to carrie horgan's discussion Interesting Cammeyer on Ebay UK
"A good example of high quality metal in British banjos. Other aspects of this banjo are showing age but not the metal on this metal-clad pot.  "

Interesting Cammeyer on Ebay UK

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vintage-CAMMEYER-MUSIC-MANUFACTURING-CO-5-String-Banjo-Case-SPARES-C55/373184830347I'm not bidding but this may be of interest to fellow classic banjoists.  I wonder who actually made it - the quality of the inlays and wider fretboard reminds me of my CE Special woodhoop (although obviously the pot is very…See More

"Yes, you are probably right but I think banjos are more expensive in UK/Europe - unless you want to buy a zither banjo!"

My Lady Jazz (classic-style banjo)

"Thanks Richard and Joel.  I think the reason why AJ Weidt appeals to me is his tunes are are very syncopated and 'raggy' and relatively easy to play (am still blown away by Aaron Jonah Lewis's album of Morley pieces - phew!) "

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.

Clarke Buehling interview

Just thought I'd share this on a youtube site 'Old Time Central'.  He plays: Lone Star Quickstep, Hot Foot Ike cakewalk and a twisty tune I'm not familiar with, The Hartford Jig.

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 !

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!
