For enthusiasts of early banjo
The first two are from Tim Twiss' book of 27 tunes from Septimus Winner's New Primer for the Banjo, 1864; the third is from Briggs' Banjo Instructor, 1855.
That was about as steady and accurate as possible!
I really think this book extends the repertoire for the beginner. Lots of quality, and some variation of styles. The Hard Times are good examples. It doubles up on the classics like Dan Tucker, Boatman, Mary Blane, Lucy Long. I also think the Yankee Doodle is tops. You get a few of those hand spins, but it is not unreasonable.
