Great - nice to hear both banjo parts played together.

Bravo! Well done!

This is the first time I've heard one of the pieces from this Folio actually played. I have always thought that the Hamilton Folio was a time capsule waiting to be opened. Since I bought it 20yrs ago (or more, I can't remember), I've only seen one other copy. Very glad Joel got it scanned...the original is so fragile, it is barely hanging together.

This is one of Joel's "transitional" Bb tuning schemes: fBbFAC (just a whole tone lower than gCGBD and just a half tone higher than A notation's eAEG#B). Still read out of A notation.

I like it and I'll put it in the queue to translate into C Notation (and Tab, of course).

Thank you so much Satoshi!  That was a beautiful piece of music played with such great feeling.

5***** from me and now I will listen to you again.
