For enthusiasts of early banjo
Some basic, yet nuanced, content from Winner's 1864 banjo book.
This is a great video for folks starting stroke style. For people coming from clawhammer playing to minstrel stroke style, it helps to show especially how the thumb is used a little differently than the usual oldtime banjo way. The result sounds distinctively 'stroke style'.
These are good tunes to work on, Greg, and I love how you recorded them so clearly. Thanks!
Youtube has a '1/2 speed' setting for playback, and that would make it even easier to learn and follow along from this video!
