Genre: Jazz / Playing Style: Classic
A more modern composition in the Classic banjo repertoire, The Syncopatin' Shuffle is also one of the most popular and has been recorded countless times. Frank Lawes, also known as "Fifthless Frank" because he liked to play a 4-string banjo fingerstyle, was an outstanding player and composer with a characteristic foot-tapping, furiously syncopated style. He kept on composing pieces into the 1960s and was well known by banjoists on both sides of the Atlantic. I have chosen this as the second piece to showcase the musical capabilities of my new Weaver banjo, a 12" Classic-style cannon based on the banjo perhaps most famously played by Joe Morley. The tone has a piercing, nasal quality and has plenty of cut, with a fat, round bass on the fourth string, and "Syncopatin' Shuffle" called for both. This style of playing is known as Classic Banjo.
