I've got the banjo, now I need the bones....... and of course the ability to play both......not I might add, all at the same time.

Carl, your technique on Darkie's Dream is impeccable, but one important aspect of your interpretation of the tune is questionable. You play the piece at the same lively tempo from beginning to end. The music, however, is what would be called "program" or "programmatic" music, meant to represent something beyond the music itself. The music marks the introductory part "Moderato" and the main part of the tune "Lively." That introductory "Moderato" part is supposed to represent the "darkie" falling asleep, while the "Lively" part is the dream itself, one presumes a dream of a dance scene appropriate to the lively music. Therefore, one should play the intro at a noticeably slower tempo than the "Lively" part, perhaps even slower than moderato. Try it that way.
Banjovially, Bob

That's good advice, Dr. Bob, I'll look a little closer at them eye-talian words next time I play it.

See you in a few weeks.
