Minstrel Banjo

For enthusiasts of early banjo

I guess it's not "Wonder Hornpipe", just "The Wonder".
This is very slightly different than I learned it but maybe I didn't get it right. I use a 'G' instead of an 'A' for the 5th note in the first bar and in the 2nd to last bar in the B part, I descend the last four notes as F, E, Eb, C instead of F, Eb, D, C which I like that much better but maybe it's 'cause I'm used to it

Oh, I'm probably beating this to death but in the 5 bar of the B part I prefer a B natural instead of a Bb.

Here's a setting of the Wonder that someone transcribed from the James Hill Manuscript, I've transposed to A for the Banjo if you want to give it a go, the first part is much like the Wonder but 2nd takes a different turn.
