Minstrel Banjo

For enthusiasts of early banjo

Would anyone have a tab in Minstrel tuning for Sweet Sunny South or is this even possible?
I really love this tune and I have been trying to sound it out by ear but have not been very successful.
Color me confused. Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Baur was, and ran with, minstrel era banjoists. He was a fan of the commercial music. I have no problem with classic era stage music as it was still being played as a part of minstrelsy. Additionally all the later era instruction as well as a good amount of sheet music includes pieces that refer to the minstrel era. It's pretty well documented. These guys liked to right things down.

I do feel his connection to that style in his music. That is why I am exploring it so much.
