Did you also notice the Broom Hilda cartoon with Irwin making noise on the banjo? The creator of Broom Hilda, Russell Meyers did this for me. We were both in Hallmark Cards Contemporary Studio in 1961. Years later Russel got syndicated, & his Broom Hilda strip became one of the properties like Muppets, & Peanuts featured on our cards & promotions. Those were the days of humor & many laughs.
Here is the Dancing finger video that works. I didn’t change the viewing options on the first link in my comment. above.
One of my favorite classical music composers, as well as difficult music to play on my flute.
When first waking up one of my 5-string banjos it’s necessary to just exercise my finger with a noodle or two. One day this happened:
had many of these characters come to our humble double wide mobile home on a dirt road in far NW Tucson in the village of Catalina. Saw them coming & came out in the porch with bagpipes & played Amazing Grace which always made our little poodle/terrier howl. My version of Amazing Grace sounded like a moose in distress during rutting season. A month or so later another group came by to “save me”, but for some reason walked past our home.
When I did something “bad” I’d get a hairbrush spanking on bare bottom. One time I told my dad: “careful, I’m fragile”. He couldn’t continue. My Mom told me this years later!
I can “hear at will” nearly all of my classical music first heard on LP records. Also most folk songs of the 50s & early 60s. Once I hear a song I can play it on my flute, tenor, or 5-string banjos. But I sometimes hear a folk song in a certain key. Gets to be difficult to play it on a banjo tuned in C [tenor] & a 5-string banjo tuned in G. “Ear Worms” can be useful for old time jazz, folk music, Irish songs & some classical pieces!
Like social media, internet, & lack of education/critical thinking?
RISD is looking for students like him.
In a ‘normal state’ that is good advice. But is pretty much of a MAGA mess that hasn’t paid much attention to mitigating the virus infection rate, much less manage other needs.
