Minstrel Banjo

For enthusiasts of early banjo

Having posted these last few tunes, I just picked up the banjo and did a few that were among the first I did when I began videos in 2008. One new one...."Nelly Bly" with the guitar. It's a time to pause and reflect, and then of course to get on to the next thing.

The book release has been good, and I thank all of you that got it. Always to clarify, it is a Primer, and a book to:

  • Lay a solid foundation
  • Provide an entry level repertoire
  • Probe the future by including many other tunes ( as played on the CD ) that may entice you, including singing and adding instruments for texture and arrangements.

The next thing....is to make available the Converse Yellow Book of 1865. I have transcribed it all, set into notation that is readable, unlike the choppy version in the original. Such a vital work with essential banjo Style tunes in it.

The book will include notes, tab, and a CD of all the tunes. It will be available late Feb. It will just take a ton of proofreading to be certain it goes out good the first time.
