Jane, I think I have a collection by Burl Ives but whether the music is for banjo or not - I'll have to check. It's at home; I am at work.

Is this bango, or banjo, or bongo? Just curious, because I never heard of a bango.......BTW, I know a banjo player that tunes his tenor 4 string like a guitar so he can just use guitar chords on it.

I usually do sea chanties on the catarrh rather than the bango.

I am sorry Jane, we're a little nuts around here......Shanties are mainly acapella, but I know that some folks use instrument accompaniment to them, but I really don't know of a formalized banjo book as such. Perhaps someone else does. I'll message a coup;e of our shanty members and see if they can check in on this thread for you.

In the meantime.............did y'all ever make up verses to that thing? Like, "My sweet Carmelito looks like Phil Esposito, NO-NO-NO---O-O."

The Banjo Player's Song Book by Tim Jumper has a whole section on sea shanties. They are simple clawhammer arrangements for the most part. It is a good place to start.

An the Elderly music link to the book is here:

Oh cool, JAB!! I love sea shanteys and I'm learning clawhammer banjo! Actually, the first song that comes to mind is The Glendy Burke. It's a great banjo song about a sternwheeler.

Amos, please explain catarrh. For some reason I relate that word to something bitter... Margo

Thank you! - especially Jab and Catspaw49! Just visited the webpage and ordered the banjo book. What a terrific chat room, bulletin board or whatever this is! I'm glad my misspelling provided some entertainment, too!!

Catarrh is what we call a cold (especially a chest cold), isn't it?

I suppose most of us know it, and it's sort of implicit in what's been said above, but to "make assurance double sure", not all sea songs (by far) are shantys. The real work songs, which is what shantys are, are better sung with minimal or no accompaniment.

IMNSHO, most non-shanty sea songs (which DO rate accompaniment) do better with banjo than guitar, although I use both instruments on occasion.

JAne: you don't have to be crazy but it helps. Also check out Jerry Goldsmith's American Folk songs Volumes 1&2. It is arranged for guitar but It may be available for banjo. Cattarh I believe is an archaic term for the flu. I know it was used in that vein during the Civil War while Grippe was the term for a cold. OOPS, Intelectual cranial flatulence. I had them backwards, Cattarh is the cold abd the grippe is the flu. To heel with it. To paraphrase that wise man Leonard McCoy on Star Trek, I'm a writer damn it, not a doctor!

In Miss Lucy Long the banjo was called called "bango" -- perhaps in the imagined negro speak of minstrel music of that era.

Are we sure that the Glendy Burke was a stern-wheeler? There were side-wheelers as well during the 1850's, and I've not seen a photo or other reference as to which style of steam boat she was. Anyone know?

A number of shanties were adapted from the minstrel stage, where the original songs were certainly accompanied by the banjo.
