"The Manhattan Minstrel" Eddy Davis playing a Solo that he Transcribed for Tenor Banjo. Originally written in 1954 as a Solo for Trumpet with accompaniment by John J. Morrissey. Davis use to play it on Trumpet when he was in High School in 1956. I have the music if you want to try it. Davis is playing his 1918 Gibson Trap Door Tenor with a 15 fret neck and a 12" head. His old buddy Vinnie Mondello put it back in playing shape for him. Here is the Transcription. Eddy Davis
We're here Eddy, but I like asparagus, carrots, radishes, etc., but broccoli just doesn't suit my taste, if you know what I mean. Your talent is unquestionable, but remember we all have different tastes in music. No offence, Jim.
Boy, I seem to really be permanently under your skin, don't I, Eddy? Just for the record, there are 103 tenor players and 44 plectrum players in the respective groups. I hope that soothes your skin a little. .........@Greenmeat
I don't play a four string, but I listen to four string banjo music a lot, both tenor and plectrum. I like the song. I am a fan of yours and follow your posts. I would make a guess there are many others. I appreciate your time in putting this together. I love the banjo you are playing. What a treasure.
