I've added two new videos here, well, one new one - The Dell Schottische - and one old one - Gumbo Reel and Pequot Galop - all from Frank Converse's Analytical of 1886. I like Converse a lot. He had his feet in the stroke style and his head in the 'guitar' style, and wrote brilliantly for either technique. And he seemed to live forever - through the minstrel period, well into the 'elevated' banjo period. He was the first to really discuss the guitar style on the banjo, using all five fingers for five-string chords - not something I do.
Anyway, hope you like the music on the videos.
