Hiawatha: a summer idyll by Neil Moret (arr for banjo by Arthur Stanley) This is recorded live with authentic mistakes - that trio section is giving me kitte...
Well played Carrie, a hard tune to play, the very rapid shifts in the trio fool everybody. You did well, it's a really good tune.
Thank you, chaps. Yes, the trio is a challenge for me. It's a fun tune and worth the effort.
Well done! That's a lot of jumping around in the trio...
Can you share the arrangement? I have one by Charlie Rogers and another simply attributed to Vess Ossman...and a 2nd banjo part via Sgallari (CE pub).
Here you go:
LOL. No wonder you find it difficult...its upside down! ;-)
Thank you, Carrie. I'll give it a compare to the other versions I have.
Here are the other two versions, just in case Ian wants to put them all in the library:
The "Dallas Artistic Banjoist" version is 3 pages. Differs mostly in the choice of enharmonic notes and as it is 3 pages, it eliminates the jumps and repeats of the 2 page versions. There are some 2-note stacks where Stanley chose to run a single melodic line. Position marks are scant (non-existent after the introduction).
The Charlie Rogers arrangement features some slides in the beginning, no harmonics. It appears to be a more modern publication as it is full of position markings, fingerings, string assignments, etc. Dynamic markings are different from the Stanley version (the Dallas version is nearly bereft of dynamics).
Or maybe the page was right side up and she's playing it upside down. That's quite a serious skill.
