"I have an old ebony bridge that I picked up in a batch of old parts. Not sure how old. The long section is very thin and tapered on the underside, sort of like an airplane wing. It seems that workmanship went in to making it. It works great."

"The MIDI is set @ the listed 116 tempo, which helps make the march move along briskly. It is a cool tune. I dunno if it is Joe's easiest...but it is pretty easy to finger. Keeping a solid rhythm and making sure you whack the strong beats…"

I have been learning this one and it doesn't sound at all like a march after the first few measures. It is nice, but in my hands it just doesn't sound at all like a march.

"I seem to remember a couple of records by Raymonde and his Band 'o' Banjos and then there are the discs made by the Aston Banjo Orchestra, other than that, it's back to Big Ben, whoever he was/is."

"Dave, obviously you will have heard the BBC recordings of the London Banjo Club. THE LONDON BANJO CLUB I don’t think that I have any others of banjo bands. Here is another Morley composition for those who have not heard the LBC DARKTOWN…"

"I think there are some very good recordings by the LBO (London Banjo Orchestra) floating around there that include several classic banjo favourites. The good thing is that most of them are fingerstyle recordings -- many of the late banjo orchestras…"
