Minstrel Banjo

For enthusiasts of early banjo

I notice that we have a lot of folks who play the rhythm bones in addition to banjo, for obvious reasons.  I count myself among this number.

 

I was just curious as to what resources people utilized in learning the bones.

I am aware of the Rhythm Bones Society and the instructional materials that they offer, both in terms of literature and videos.  I have also watched Carolina Chocolate Drops a lot (being a huge fan) and learned a lot about bones from them (big shout out to Terry Bell of Bell & Sons Banjos for also linking some great CCD/Bones video).

 

Any other good instructional websites, youtube videos, books/cd/dvd for bones? Let me know what you used or are currently using.

Hi Genford,

Thank you for starting this discussion on bones resources.

The Drops video you mention is the latest "how to play the bones" video I came across on YouTube, and #14 on the playlist. The complete playlist runs a little over an hour, which offers a nice comprehensive collection of freebie info. I'm sure you will enjoy viewing them.

Thank you again for starting this discussion. Always on the lookout for new "how to play the bones" videos to add to the playlist.

Scott
