Hi
I have come across an old song with Bella playing in a really nice tuning. The songs called "Who's That Knocking on my door" and I think it's from a cd called perfume Garden. Anybody know anything more about the song or CD or has any body got a tab of the banjo part.
Thanks
Ian

Hey Ian, its not the Dreadful Snakes "Who's that Knocking on my Door?" If it is, I worked out the break and the banjo is tuned to F (all the strings down a tone). It is on the Snakes Alive CD. Great track that I think the New Essex Bluegrass Band plays.

Your right about that, and as a matter of interest it's there newBanjo player Graham Turner who is looking for the version by Bella if you have any tab he'd be greatfull .

Just FYI - it's "Bela", not "Bella" - pronounced BAY-la. Common error with an uncommon name.

Graham Turner: Do I know him? Did he ever pick at the Stables? Picks a Stelling? Are you going to Steeple Morden this weekend? Enough questions already. This what I hear:




I think the NEBB pick it in E, though!

Sorry about the spelling Bird dog.
