I have been enjoying listening to the Olly Oakley collection 'Banjo, Burlesque and Bolero'.  On the zitherbanjo.org.uk site there is mention of a tune he composed called 'Devil-May-Care' but,…Continue

Outdoor banjo

I keep hearing that skin-head banjos (and also nylon strings) are weather sensitive.  I haven't noticed this living in a temperate English climate but I wonder if playing outdoors in Autumnal weather…Continue

"I have friends who knew Shirley, I'll ask them, but I am doubtful.  Later in life she turned her attention to becoming an expert in early American tinware.  She had stopped playing banjo but attended ABF rallies."

"That is a good question. SSS published works by Edith Secor and Ada McClelland but it is all in A notation.  I am currently drawing a blank for later compositions (post 1899)."

Female composers

Hello banjo friendsThere were many female composers of ragtime piano - Irene Giblin, May Aufiderheide, Sadie Koninsky to name a few - and many of these tunes were then played on the banjo however, I am curious as to whether any female composers actually wrote compositions specifically for the banjo.  There were so many banjo compositions by the likes of Herbert J Ellis, Joe Morley, Emile Grimshaw and I would love to know who the female composers were.  Thanks in advance.  See More

Sam Payne's Tune

"The SSS came up whilst I was away from home on holiday.  Another one that got away was more recent and was a Weaver which appeared in a local, to me, saleroom, it was in good condition and had the initials 'JM' on the case. I'm…"

Sam Payne's Tune

"Thanks for the comments.  That's probably true Par - it's easy to get lose pace when playing a tune with different repeats.  It's a good one for practicing alternate fingering and slides. I originally heard this tune on a cd…"

Sam Payne's Tune

"A jolly tune that we don't hear very much these days, nice playing and the banjo tone is really good. Sam Payne's SSS 'Universal Favourite' came up for sale on Ebay a few years ago, it made £95.00 so somebody got a good…"

Sam Payne's Tune

"Nice! I agree with Joel, the harmonics sound fine. I hope you don't take this as negative critisism, because it isn't, just an obesrvation. When you go back to the A part after playing the B part, it comes thru to me, as if you skip a…"

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 !

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
