The banjo is a 30 hooks bakelite shell Harmony. The relationships between the strings is that of the G modal tuning with the 5th tuned to F. That particular banjo was loosing too much tone quality when set with a capo at 2nd fret. On other banjos I play the tune one full tone higher, using a capo. The "violin" background sound is produced by a minimal midi file played with Windows Media Player. The speed was intentionally set to 145 beats per minute. The clip is a kind of "collection item," because it implements a clawhammer melodic style I no longer, or hardly ever use.

David Margolin plays the banjo, and I (Yigal Zan) the violin. Our notes are based on rendition by the Reed Island Rounders. David plays with the banjo tuned in A-modal (aEADE). By my analysis Maysville is a C major/A minor tune where the A minor dominates.

I post this clip in response to a BHO member's request. The banjo's being played alone makes the notes clearer, but I doubt that the slower rendition can help significantly in figuring out how grace and other rapid notes, are being executed.
