Minstrel Banjo

For enthusiasts of early banjo

Two of my favorites from Knauff's Virginia Reels put together as a medley. That B part on Old Dominion always wants to speed out of control!

thanks for posting the link Paul, I was looking for it earlier with no success and gave up.

Chris - I believe the article Mark and John are referring to is "George P. Knauff's Virginia Reels and Fiddling in the Antebellum South," in American Music 5: 2 (Summer 1987), 121-44. Someone correct me if I'm wrong...

Any progress on this book Mark? :)

Tabs are all done. Just need a little time to design the book, add some historical background etc. Alan Jabbour is also going to write a forward for me when I can get him a draft. I was hoping to have it by now, but I also don't want to rush the project.
