Minstrel Banjo

For enthusiasts of early banjo

Hi all,

Bob Winans put a new FBC book on my radar.  He remembered that he saw it at the Boston Public Library.

A nice phone call to the music department had me talking with the Curator of Music Metro Voloshin.  He found the book and cataloged it for us.

I had my local library put in for a loan.  That triggered a PDF to be made.  And oh joy!  It may be had by all here...


I've not played with it yet other than thumbing through it.

Thanks to Bob, Metro and Pat Payer at the Lawrence Library in Pepperell for making this available.

Yeah, I know.  But Joe A. recorded it with the d# and it kind of got fixed in my brain.

Notice on the title page it lists most of Converse's instructions books, including "Simplified Method for the Banjo."  That must be that funky little proto-tab book that Greg discovered online at an AEBG.
