A Site Dedicated to all enthusiasts of Classic Style Banjo
After all the discussions on the group by the girlie brigade of players on tonal quality and delicate finger ends I decided to recruit my wife to help me produce a video of me playing my new Clifford Essex Paragon killing machine.
This is the Joe Morley composition Circus Parade and I was given playing suggestions by Tarrant Bailey Junior personally after he saw me play it as a competition piece …. so you know what to expect !! ☺
Of course I play it too loudly with as much tonal variation and “mellifluosity” as banging two dustbin lids together, but I love it ☺
I have practiced it recently but obviously not enough so still manage to make a few bummers in it, but after 3 or 4 video “takes” I start to lose the will to live.. so here it is warts and all!
Many thanks to my wife Lynn for playing along and not complaining at all about me practising it over and over and over again… what do you think about that, Marc S ?
