Carrie had a bit of trouble adding her video so I have had a try and here it is!

You are  getting a really lovely sound from that banjeaurine Carrie. Great playing of a great tune.

Hiccups?   Naah

Hi Carrie, that was a great piece of banjo playing, I love the sound of your banjeaurine, from where did you get it and what make is it?...Steve.

Yes, A.J. Weidt composed some great ragtime tunes.

Thanks Steve.  It is an S.S Stewart 'Imperial' banjeaurine (sourced through Findajo) - there is currently one for sale on the John Alvey Turner website.  Now, I just need to find a banjo orchestra...

Hi Carrie, I've had a look at it but I think I might have trouble persuading Gill that I need yet another banjo!...Steve.

Well done! Weidt is my favorite American composer, I think. "You can't go wrong with a Weidt tune!"

If I could get a banjeaurine to sound that full and clean, I’d be happy. “Sweet Corn” is one of my favorites and this is not one I’d heard before but is now a new favorite; Weidt had an all-too-rare composer's knack for knowing how to make a piece “go somewhere” and you certainly take it there with your great playing, Carrie.

Thanks chaps. Yes, it's a bit easier doing the finger stretches on the banjeaurine. It's a funny beast - like a ukulele on growth hormones.
