Who said that they like waltzes?...  well, you won't like this one :-)

I really should practise these for about another month before I record them!

The timing drifts off a bit and it is a bit fast here and there ... but what the heck, I love the piece.

Frank Lawes was, in my opinion, one of the greatest composers for classic style banjo.

Well done, Ian, another great contribution to conclude this most auspicious week in Classicbanjodom. Since our friend Greg was unofficially named God of Grimshaw for his excellent "Footlight Favourite", you might consider adopting the title of Lord of Lawes! I'm sure Gloria would approve.

Thanks Marc, I don't have the piano score. I don't know if there ever was one.

Does anyone on the group have piano for this piece please?

King of Nings and Lord of Lawes?

Comment by Mike Moss on December 11, 2011 at 18:42

The possibilities are endless... the Caliph of Cammeyer? Master of Morley? Baron of Basset?Wizard of Weidt? Earl of Eno? Hero of Hunter? King of Kirby?

Hey Jody, now "King of Nings" sounds good, or you can call me "our leader" if you wish !
