For enthusiasts of early banjo
I put this for sale over on ebay. The original from which we all play. Great historical artifact for collectors and enthusiasts. I owned it , held it , and transcribed it. Now I'm ready to pass it on. I take offers over there.
Can't recall if I knew you had this. How did YOU get it...Ebay?
Emily Converse gave it to me a few years ago.
Very lucky you! I recently purchased your “Buckley’s Banjo Guide of 1868” book. Are there complete digital versions of these books?
What I forgot to add...with/in tab. I have the ones that are available at archive.org.
The only tab I know of beyond piecemeal transcriptions, is the Weidlich book.
I hope you get a lot of bidders, Tim. I don't think I'm ready to get rid of my copy (or the rest of the Converse books I have). In cleaning out my music room to move it, I found an original copy of Buckley's 1860 that I forgot I had. It should have been called "The Greenback Book" as it predates Converse's...and has a green cover. I've had an eye out for an original Rice but have never seen one offered.
I think there have been a couple of transcriptions of the "little yellow" to TAB. I've tabbed a number of the tunes myself. Still, it is very nice to have an original in ones hands. Recommended.
The Buckley is rare. Joe Ewers has one I believe.
