"LOL, I was thinking along the lines of Banjeaurine, Banjo, 2nd Banjo and Cello Banjo. It doesn't quite get up high enough for a Piccolo part. Reading the bass clef again has been interesting. I learned it when I was playing Cello (not the CB…"

"Dude, It would be no problem to find two more players for your first rally!  We would make quite a splash with a 4 banjo arrangement."

"Hi Trapdoor2, I can't thank you enough for taking the trouble to give me access to the tabs.  Ian's video was what inspired me to want to play this tune and now, thanks to you, I'll be busy for a while.  I'll let you…"

"See? I told you waltzes were easy... The mp3 is considerably faster than 'standard', it just sounds better to me there (150bpm). The tab reflects the position markers in the notation, mostly. If I felt I needed to alter it, I did. I also…"

"Hi Steve, thanks for your comment.  Firstly, regarding the tabs.  I would know the tune first before I decided to try playing it so there is no problem there.  Secondly, I do agree with you that it is good to put in the effort to…"

"Its ok, Joel. I think I'm just getting cranky in my geezerhood. Now get off my lawn! ;-) As I have said before, I don't really care about the mechanics of learning...I'm about getting people to play the tunes. How they get there is…"

"Let me elaborate. It is not a lecture, it is a recommendation.  Frankly, I wish that that it absolute when I started.  I feel like I wasted time. I by no means consider myself a great player and I pretty much crumble with stage fright for…"

"Thanks Marc, I tried to create a TAB from my original notation score created in Encore and for some reason it would not let me!!! Anyway automatically created TABs for banjo are usually wrong as hasn't a clue which position the notes are in and…"

"Once again, into the breach? Do we always need the same old lectures with these requests? Perhaps we ought to have a FAQ to reference for tab users..."

"Hi John, I'm with Joel on this one, one of the things to consider with tab is that unless you have a recording or know the tune well, it isn't always easy to make sense of it. By being able to read music, you can scan through a score and…"

"Waltzes are easy to convert to tab, I'll put it on my "to do" list. Shouldn't take but a day or two for me to get to it. I'll post it here when done."

Zither Banjo

I've just acquired this very fine Barnes & Mullins Zither Banjo circa 1900.  I stripped it down, cleaned and polished it and put a set of Clifford Essex Zither Banjo Strings on.  I made a new bridge out of some 50 year old maple which I've had for years and it now sounds great.
