Not a minstrel banjo nor minstrel tune, I know, but perhaps I'll be playing some minstrel ditties as I get better at this thing.
I'm practicing a tune from the American Appalachian ballad called Pretty Saro. I've been learning to play penny whistle..tin whistle..for two months now. As a beginner I have a long way to improve...but it's proving to be such an enjoyable journey!
I'm playing a Jerry Freeman tweaked Blackbird 'D' whistle.
