Minstrel Banjo

For enthusiasts of early banjo

These  are some good times here. I especially enjoy all the new video posts. For those that are doing some of your first, you have set a benchmark to reflect upon as you watch your playing grow and improve. Good playing all around! Nobody should ever worry that "that tune has been done". Just play and post. Everybody gains.

That's right, Tim. And isn't it fun to hear how these tunes, played note for note, sound different on different banjos by different players?

Agreed Tim!  I know I've said it more than once in my short time participating here and playing, but if it wasn't for all of the people and their talent in place before I came here I'd be lost and "videoless" - all the videos of tunes done in amaazingly perfect ways, the lessons and other instructionals, the great deal Terry gave on banjo kits, the genuine, kind, sharing nature.  I just jumped on the band-wagon...hummm, a banjo band wagon.

I heartily agree!  I've been away for a few days, and it's nice to see all the new videos.  Now "Where Did You Come From" and "Goin ober de Mountains" are kicking around inside my brain - the first place they have to be before I can learn them.  Thanks Nicholas and Matt!

Agreed - I haven't had a chance to record much lately, but I've learned a bunch of tunes since AEBG V.  If someone's already recorded a video of it, it makes it a lot easier to work it up off the page.  If there are multiple versions of it kicking around, even better; everyone plays them a little differently and you can pick and choose the parts you like best from each one.
