A Site Dedicated to all enthusiasts of Classic Style Banjo
Same tune, played fingerstyle.
I still can't picture a polka being danced to this. It sounds more like a eccentric clog than like a polka. Did "polka' denote something different in the 19th century than it does now?
It is very interesting to see the tune played in the different styles. Watching the right hand, when you play Classic Style your hand does not flail about as much as it seems to in your first video. Which style feels most "comfortable" to you when playing?
When I play a piece in Classic style my right hand remains almost fixed with only the fingertips moving. I find it very difficult moving the hand around as you do in Polka version 1!
ps. I agree with Jody.. That's an unusual sounding polka!
Thanks Ian and everybody for listening to this little edition of "Early Classic Banjo". I'll be back with the Luscomb.
PS...both styles feel about the same to me.
Very nice! I like both versions but this one does seem to nail the rhythm a bit better than the first. Definitely a very interesting tune.
Very cool to have two to compare. Both are excellent...but I think I like the softer tone of the stroke-style one. I like the strummed chord in the stroke style version much better than the plucked chord in the fingerstyle. Thanks Tim!
