Funeral March of an Old Jaw Bone

For two banjos in the classic style, composed by Bolsover Gibbs.

I'm not sure of the year, but my educated guess is circa 1890.

The so-called "classic style" came after the minstrel era but before banjo became associated with jazz (four string plectrum styles) and country/folk. There are a great many wonderful and largely forgotten tunes that were written specifically for the instrument.

I love this, and the record noise is a nice touch.

Thanks! It also covers up a few performance/recording shortcomings. The Izotope Vinyl plugin is fun.

Covers up shortcomings, you say? I must have this magical plugin!
