Minstrel Banjo

For enthusiasts of early banjo

I can read the description on Wikipedia and hear them played on my Twiss USB drive but I can't wrap my noodle around it. Currently trying to play Frank Converse's Jig and it's tripping me up.

A hammer on and a pull off as fast as you can.

Crazy pants. I will give that a go.

That helped make it click. Not to great sounding but I get it. I struggle with grace notes too

Hi Chris, This is not a banjo - it’s a lute with gut strings (like a banjo), but I am providing it to you because it has a hundred trills (not quite). Hope you enjoy it. It should clear up your question about trills. https://www.cs.dartmouth.edu/~wbc/tom/Chaconne_dXArlequin.mp3
