For enthusiasts of early banjo

A slow left hand fingering for the way I play this song on the banjo.

oh weird there's a wound string in there? I am working on a four stringer myself and actually left off the wound string. Should i be leaving off the first or second one instead? I am assuming that's a set of minstrel nylgut strings.

This is awesome Mark.  More!

(Chris, I think you just leave off the lowest bass string)

Chris, It's not wound. It's just the only remaining gut string from the original banjo strings. I've replaced them as they break with nylgut.

Nice. I've never heard that particular song...on a gourd banjo.

Great sound for a great song.

Very nice. Is that standard (no bass) tuning?

Yes.
