Notes: Here is an old Austrian March-turned-country instrumental, "Under The Double Eagle", arranged for Banjo solo (with accompaniment). I have included all the original parts (to my knowledge) in this version, with an intro and 4 parts. The intro and first 2 parts are in C, the 3rd part is in F, and the 4th part is in Bb, ending with a repeat of the 2nd part (in C). This is arranged in a Reno style, although not a tablature of his playing of the tune (which he did admirably!). It's fairly difficult, as one would expect with the key changes. Has a Rhythm Guitar & Bass rhythm track. Have fun!

Notes: An untitled reel by Altan with a strong oldtimey flavor with reminiscences of a canadian song. First part in Am, 2nd in AM

Notes: Inspired by Richard Hefner's website (EZfolk), this simplified version of Up on the Housetop (Rooftop) is one of my favorite Christmas tunes for the banjo. It's very bouncy and Christmassy. I've linked some of Richard's music files to play along with. Links to Christmas Corner.
