"Yah, this isn't abridged, just a few measures changed. Probably just enough to get away with calling it "a new arrangement" rather than a copy."

"It sounds to me, very much like Vineleaf Jig, number 44 in Turner's 60 Breakdowns, Jigs & Hornpipes."

Joel Hooks replied to Brett Lowe's discussion Another great recording
"I'm wiling to bet that the one in the music library was pulled from one of the Turner's Album things.  I find that many of the pieces in those albums are abridged in some way when compared to the full sheet music. "

"I enjoyed looking thru both. The Turner's version is for two banjos, of course. The 'unknown' (Grimshaw?) version is solo and different enough to cause me some issues (I've been keying both into Musescore). The Turner version is…"

Jake Jeremy Glanville replied to Brett Lowe's discussion Tarrant Bailey Jnr Recordings on You Tube
"Thanks very much Brett, for the recordings!  They're of very high quality, and I really appreciate them.  I have one of Tarrant Bailey's banjos, or at least I think so as it has his name inside, and the date: 31/1/48. …"

Brett Lowe replied to Anthony Peabody's discussion Encore, MusicTime and Passport music
"Hello Anthony, I used to use Encore and liked it.  It looks as though it is heading into obsolescence which is a shame. However, it was always very time consuming producing finished printable copies at level of appearance that I thought…"

Brett Lowe replied to Anthony Peabody's discussion Cello banjo player seeks company
"Hello Anthony, I'd love to take you up on your offer, but suspect Paeroa, New Zealand is a little too far off the motorway.  Do hope you find someone keen a little closer to home."
