Minstrel Banjo

For enthusiasts of early banjo

This one has always been an oddiy to me due to it's unusual tuning requirement ( d# B E G# B ) and some obviously incorrect phrasings in the measures. Anyway...

Actually, that's a pretty nice tune but not much of a 'b' part....or am I missing something?

No....but take a look at the original for yourself. I would rather leave this one out.

It's very pretty!   Has an Austrian yodel kind of feel to it, to me anyway.

Did you use the tuning called for in the book?

Now Tim...how about giving us a tune titled Van Morrison's Jig next?  If anyone could do it, you could.

Thank you. Yes, I did use the tuning. It forms the V chord in the key. I put tab up for it.
