The book entitled "Winner's New Primer for the Banjo" from 1864 is my next project. This book is so often overshadowed by Briggs. It contains about 27 easy to medium pieces. Interestingly, it still uses "Briggs' tuning" meaning that the key signature is G or D and references the thumb string with an upward stem as "D". Good pieces....some repetition of songs, but still a little different. NO fingerings are supplied.
I think I can price this at about $12.00. It should be ready in a week or so. TAB.
Yahoo! Do it!
Good project, Tim!
I have 22 of 27 tracks done. It seems different to me than how I judged it early, especially on the playbacks. It is certainly one book that does not reach the grasp of the early and intermediate player.
All straight Stroke. I got mine from here.
I am sure it is in a library others have sourced, but I have not looked lately.
Me neither. I know it came from there, and it may be on another part of the site ( I think it its hard to navigate ).
Please let us know when it is finished. I would like to obtain a copy.
