"Carrie is right to acknowledge that i have used an Eastman to play classic banjo, although you'd probably be better off consulting Joel Hooks for specific information. To put it bluntly, I suck! Haha."

"Paul D and I play jam this at the rallies. You playing is solid and tone is nice and clear. I don't have much advice only to watch your RH alternate fingering. Your LH is very good!"

"Yes sounds very good and smooth.  Your left hand work is nice and you do a great job holding position and not lifting your fingers too much.  That is difficult to do-- many "old time" players wag and flail their LH fingers all…"

"Very interesting to hear those versions, one after another. To me, Ruby Brooks' version sounds influenced by Irish traditional music (reels)...no spaces, all notes. Played almost like rests made him itch. Pidoux is so recognizable in this…"

I think I have the Stars and Stripes around here somewhere...but Sousa's original transcriptions are usually not very good banjo music. Whoever his arranger was...he was horrific at banjo. If you have a version you'd like to see in Tab, let me know and I'll take care of it! OTOH, "The Washington Post March" is a longtime Classic Banjo favorite.

Ok, I've pulled the Essex version out of my files. I think this is the version Marc Dalmasso is playing in his video in the Music Library. Will this do?

No need to go through all of that trouble. I was just wondering if you had already done it
