Genre: Ragtime / Playing Style: Classic
This is Alfred Kirby's most famous solo and arguably one of his very best, with a great foot-tapping rhythm and a brilliant use of the fourth string, particularly in the trio part. One of the earliest recordings of this solo was cut in the 1920s by Kirby's friend, Ernest Jones, a zither-banjo player of no small skill who produced a brilliant, strident tone with his instrument. I have chosen this solo as the third in a series of recordings to demonstrate the capabilities of my new Weaver. The fourth string produces a fat, round bass that makes a neat contrast with the clear, nasal trebles. This style of playing is known as Classic Banjo.
