Minstrel Banjo

For enthusiasts of early banjo

Due to my freshness into the minstrel banjo world, I was wondering why some players prefer to use thimbles? To me they would seem like a hinderance while playing, but I can see why players would like to use them. Where they used often in minstrel bands? Thanks for the help.

You should get a few other players with pipes and cigarettes and call yourselves "Smokey Joel and the Tobacco Rollers"

thats a knee slapper :)

Well, I might be persuaded to clamp a cigar in my mouth, especially if I don't have to light it. But that feller SHAVED! There are some things I just won't do.
