Minstrel Banjo

For enthusiasts of early banjo

Got a new gadget...a foot tambo. Not "period", but certainly "Minstrel"..progressive in thought and quite practical. The tune is from Briggs'...fine tuning a few phrase which I had been playing incorrectly.

Nice.  I like the slide on first note.  I never noticed the first two notes are scored "F" "X".  I've always just played two thumbs.

Ah...de "Combination" at work early.

Not that it matters a lot on that phrase. Rice would have double thumbed it I bet. The Combination DOES work well through the triplet figure.
