Minstrel Banjo

Elaine and I are really excited that our book I Like That Good Old Song is almost ready to go.   We will have preliminary copies available for sale at this upcoming Early Banjo conference.  The book contains songs with melody line, chords and lyrics, all derived from period piano sheet music.  We are trying to determine how many to bring, so please send me a note and reserve a copy if you are interested.  We are asking $25 per copy.  Here is the table of contents:

The last day to pre-order for the Banjo Gathering will be tomorrow, 6/19.   Thanks!

So, do I understand that these songs are all in standard notation, not banjo tab, correct?

That's right. Standard notation, chords and lyrics

That's a whole lotta songs.   :)

Our book is now available!  You can order it through our website for US orders only.  It is also available through Elderly Instruments.
