Minstrel Banjo

For enthusiasts of early banjo

Hello All:

Sorry if this is a repeat question, a quick search of the forums and resources did not show me what I was hoping to find. Does anyone know of or have a Chord Chart, specifically for Briggs and/or Converse tunings? I have opportunity to play along with some family members at a Christmas party this coming weekend, but with mostly guitar players. Was hoping to get my hands on a chord chart or app for my ipad, I found an app and I have a couple of chord charts from some begginner banjo books, but none with the Briggs tuning in mind. Thanks for any info

I photocopied the chord page from Pete Seeger's "How to Play the Five-String Banjo" and converted the chord names (along the left side) so that they correspond to Briggs'.  If you want them, I could send you them in an attachment.  I'll send you my email address as a message.

Awesome, sounds great. Look for your message then, I'll send my email too if that helps

 Pages 28-36 of the ABM.

My mistake.

Hmmm.  ABM.  A monogram of something with which I should be very familiar, but am not.

Please elaborate, Joel.  I'm prepared to feel foolish (or forgetful) when I read your answer.

Where I grew up everybody knew an ABM was an anti-ballistic missile.   "Mr. ABM" was in the cartoon on the front page of the Chicago Tribune every morning for about 30 or 40 years.--Rob Morrison
