Another great performance.  That looks a challenging one to play ('twiddly bits') :)

p.s. what banjo are you playing Richard?

It's a good tune to play, I can't remember ever having the original sheet music which may be in 'A' notation, I probably got this version from a Van Eps transcription, but i wrote it out for two banjos when I used to play with Paul Whyman a long time ago. The banjo was made by Ome.

Well done!

There are a couple of manuscript versions of this available. I have the Van Eps version and an another that is unidentified...but may be by Bill Bowen. Stern published it in 1900 (A notation) and the ABF has a copy in their library.

Thank you for your kind comments. Now the we are  all confined to barracks for the duration, I'm hoping to sharpen my banjo playing up but we'll see what happens.

Thanks Richard.  I've never played an Ome but they have a good reputation.

I`m enjoying your performances.

Thank you Shawn. Nobody has ever said that before. I remember one person saying  " i've never heard anything like it", so I suppose that they must have been quite pleased with what they had heard.
