Minstrel Banjo

For enthusiasts of early banjo

I hope you enjoy the last batch of Rice tunes I posted. Something felt really good about those tempos I hit. Please feel free to comment on your interpretation of how these go. I am starting to repeat songs, and justly so. I went back to my first YouTube songs, and almost felt like I should start over. Although not horrible, I can feel how much I've changed and developed the last couple of years. Taping is a great catalyst toward improvement. The first tune I ever put up was "Sandy Boy". It helps me recall some right hand struggles I had. At that point, I had fixed a lot of problems, but went into the "woodshed" the following winter to really try and tackle more of my deficiencies. Good execution is now less a matter of luck, than solid technique. Again in a few years, I'll look back on this stuff and think "jeez, that sucked, didn't it". I'm sure we all have our struggles. It's such a simple technique that takes so much work to be able to do...crazy!
