Porto Rico by Ford T. Dabney Classic Banjo

Composed by the famous Ragtime composer of the early 1900s, Ford. T Dabney, it is unlikely that this rare rag has ever been played on banjo before!

Wow, what an outsanding arrangement, you make it look easy! And the sound of that Weaver is made of pure awesome. Looks like it plays easy, too!

The banjo sounds really good, no wonder Morley and Rogers etc. played these, they have no equal as regards tone and volume.

Thanks for the kind comments. It is not too difficult with a bit of dogged determination!

I have now added the banjo score to the MUSIC LIBRARY.

Ian has added another version of the score which is tagged onto the end of the one currently in the library. I've reduced it to two pages and it contains the additions and changes carried out by Ian plus some of my original arrangement...Steve.

Ah...two pages will make it easier to handle whilst I TAB it out; numbering the measures helps a lot too! Excellent work, Steve. Keep 'em coming!

Yes Marc, it is good that Steve has produced a shorter score. I found that with the repeats being slightly different I ended up with 8 pages at one stage!  

Well done Steve. He must have too much time on your hands or there are more hours a day in Malvern as it takes me ages to enter the dots and Steve seems to do it in a blink :-)
