Hi All,I am new new to minstrel banjo, having gotten having gotten a Bell Boucher Banjo, and Wiedlichs version of Briggs book a few weeks ago. I am interested in which Briggs tunes you would list as easiest to learn. So far I've worked through Old Joe - as Strumelia's calling it a beginners tune- as well as John Booker and Jim Along Josie as I could already play them frailing style.Thanks for you inputRickSee More
