Wildwood Flower

Posted by BryanWB on Sunday, July 18, 2010

Well, I went to see my banjo teacher, Don Clarke in Torquay a couple of weeks ago.

I have tabs for 3 Levels of Wildwood Flower -  Richard Hefner's arrangement, from his website:

Don suggested I move up from level 2 to level 3 -  I know it's probably real easy for most of you guys and gals, but I'm finding  it tough to play the Level 3 at the moment. But it's a nice tune, and I'm persevering with it, and always enjoying picking up the banjo anyway.

Best wishes from Ivybridge, Devon, England.

Hi Edward, Thanks, yes words a nice too. Wish I had the courage to sing too, though LOL. (I better stick to the five strings!)

Sounds like you're coming along. What a beautiful place to play banjo, in Ivybridge.

Just seen that one of your favourite bands is Arizona Smoke Revue. I saw them about thirty years ago at the Farningham Folk Club down in Kent. Fantastic band. I bought their first album, and I've still got it.

Blimey Colin ...........I remember Farningham Folk Club 40 years ago when it was held in the The Coach House ( of The Bull ) and we all sat on beer barrels in an `L` shaped room with the stage in the corner and listened to resident groups like The Crayfolk, and then Skinners Rats I recall it was perishing cold in the winter. I think it closed in the late 90`s.

Sorry to hijack your blog Bryan but I`ve come over all nostalgic.

Back to the subject.....there ain`t nothing wrong with Wildwood Flower which can sound great even in its more simple forms. Persevere my friend.............Regards Peter V.
