Minstrel Banjo

For enthusiasts of early banjo

Minstrel tune, "Cuffee's Go Down", from Winner's New Primer for the Banjo 1864 played on a Boucher banjo made by James Hartel. Tuned dGDF#A. Just learned this. My first go at playing it.

Thanks Tim. I was going through the book looking for an interesting tune. Never had heard this one before. It is a real right hand finger exercise!

Yeah that's one of those tunes where you wind up staring at your right hand instead of the left.  I know that feeling!  Good job, and love the title.
