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

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!
