That sound lik a good idea.

I'm sure I could manage to play this one, but unfortunately, I don't have the equipment needed to post anything.

I certainly hope to hear Marco Levi, Don Lewers, and others play it.

I’d be very interested to hear what you all do with Some Of These Days. I’m a beginner, taking lessons, and I’m working on this tune right now, so it would be a big help to hear what different people do with it. If I could make a request - it would be just as interesting to hear what you do while comping, too.

Well - here´s a first take recording from the past - a bunch of retired jazz musicians including me were gathered in my studio - everything was totally improvised.  BTW - the most important part of these regular gatherings was an in-between Italian cheese/bread board - the guys loved this - LOL!

The two banjo solos - one octave apart - in the beginning and from 4:30 - are not what´s to be called chord melody - they are more of improvised rhythmic/harmonic solos as mostly used over here in jazz bands.

I hope that it can be of inspiration and maybe joy for some of you.

Here's a version I recorded thirty years ago. It's on my "media page" and it's already had a few listeners.  https://www.banjohangout.org/myhangout/media-player/audio_player2.asp?musicid=38808&archived=

The banjo was slightly muted so as not to irritate the neighbors.

I forgot to mention Omeboy as one of the people I'd enjoy hearing for this tune.

The recording is a little disappointing due to the muted banjo, and I think the neighbors may have been irritated less by the banjo than by the drum's thumps.

Omeboy Fantastic, really enjoyed that. Excuse my ignorance, but are Ome banjos really good in terms of modern banjos?

I know Buddy Wachter plays them a lot, doesn't he?

Cheers,

Daniel,
I don't always play an Ome, but they are definitely my preference. I have owned four Omes over my life time: two plectrums and two five strings---and they were all wonderful banjos in every respect. The tone, craftsmanship and playability are among the best you'll experience. @dannyburke1

Thanks for the prompt George, but I can't successfully record anything on Audacity at the moment, it's on the blinck!, hopefully I can get it fixed soon.

  Jan's picked a good TOTM to work on ...... here's the sheet music if anyone needs it in G.  The  B7th in bars  4 and 5, is usually written as an  F#m7b5, the rest of the chords are fine.  Thanks a lot Paul , enjoyed your plectrum version, good on you.  ..... Don.

ps. I've always played this one in F, but I can't find a sheet in that key . ..... Don.

Songwriter Shelton Brooks was a black Canadian.

His other big hit was “Darktown Strutters Ball”...

Dang July is almost over. I'd like to start doing these and I do love this song. I recorded a version last year with a banjo uke, guitar, toy piano, brushes, and vocal. richardbogen.bandcamp.com/trac...hese-days

I'll try to get my plectrum and share something else.

Great idea to extend it to August. I've been neglecting my tenor banjo recently but will try and learn this one.

Hello gents!  I've found two different versions of "Some Of These Days" I recorded some years ago: they are totally improvised, one at my home, the other at my friend's home.
