This is a lovely tango composed by Mr bernard Sheaff . Unfortunatly , i was unabble to find some sheet music for it ; so i learned mostly by earing the geoff Freed ‘ version . The banjo is a CE with regular tuning .

Excellent!  I love Tangos, they're rare in the Classic Banjo repertoire...might have to learn this one.


I see that Paul has uploaded the dots. Dots for the 2nd are also available.

What a great Tango and well played, as well as the banjo, I play accordion and Tangos are a particular favourite of mine and fit well with the accordion. Originally Tangos would have been played on an Argentine bandon which is best described as a cross between a button accordion and a concertina.  I 'll have to go through my music and see if I can come up with another and try it on my Weaver.

Thanks , guys ; this CE banjo is made by alfred Weaver ( he has the Weaver characteristics ) , about 1901 ,i guess ; the pearch pole say only " CE grafton street " , engraved in the wood ; More interesting  :, it ' s a forgoten model ; the pearch pole say " CE special X " . The guy who made the historic clifford essex site speaks only about CE special or CE special XX , ( later called concert -grand ) ; This model is mentioned anywhere , it is a 10 1/2 inches forgoten model
