I thougth I was writing a hornpipe - then it sort of morphed into this!

A Hornpipe goes swing! Yeah I really like this piece. It is not so simple as the title might suggest, right.
Nice tone and great feel. Oh by the way, can I have the tab? LOL!

That's way-y-y too close to CLASSIC banjo!  
(Sounds like something Frank Bradbury would have played.)

Better watch it -- The American Banjo Fraternity will start
hitting-you-up for dues, soon!  (I'm way overdue on MINE!)

Thanks Manuel! - glad you are NOT serious about the tab (what a nightmare that would be)

Ed - thanks, sometimes I feel like I am channeling one of those old-timers. But if anyone asked me what style that is, I would have to tell 'em it's BANJO music ;-)

I would have named it 'Complexity'. ;-)
Great piece! Love the tension between ancient and modern tones........

Hey Laurence... Yeah, your becoming that "hey, check out that guy Brose has a cd of playing banjo..." guy.. lol.. I've been sharing your stuff with a few of my bluegrass friends. This is great too thanks for posting! Speaking of tabs.... I'd prolly just about pay for a transcription of West of Bucharest.. it would teach me alot ;)
