Minstrel Banjo

For enthusiasts of early banjo

Will somebody come out and play with me?

Hey, anybody want to explore Picayunne Butler this week. I am geeked on the idea of following the new sheet music. Instrumental or vocal, this is one of our gems....in the top 5 of Maher's playbill frequency.

I'd love to, here it is the middle of winter with my banjo on my knee. But I only read tab. Sure looking forward to your rendition though! Hey, I think we're gonna have a Thumb gathering in a couple months.

Terry, it seems a shame that a good musician and taltented instrument make such as yourself would allow a stumbling block like that to stand in your way. Many beginners on this site have had success with using the Banjo Rosetta Stone for a simple translation to tab. It is up to your own individuality and creativity what happens after that, but that gives you the notes.

I'm still working on getting my voice back, but I'd suggest Auld Lang Syne.  It was very well known at the time of the civil war.  I have to record Clare de Kitchen first...

I know, Tim. I used to read bass clef. I still read fiddle music. I need a teacher to swat me with a yardstick.

Bam! You've been struck.
