Minstrel Banjo

For enthusiasts of early banjo

Far South Reel from pg 105 of Converse's Analytical Banjo Method (1886)

I was inspired to learn this piece by Clarke Buehling and Tim Twiss.

Nice feel to this Greg. Very funky, and danceable.

Greg, that is a great tune.  You play it with a nice groove.  I'm glad you posted it as it got me to go learn it.  After you get it down it is a fun tune to play.

Thanks Tim and Bo. I've been wanting to play this piece for quite a while, but could never make the time to memorize it. It really is fun to play. Perhaps we can all play it at the next AEBG!

Okay, okay, don't hurt me - is there tab available for this tune?  i'd love to learn it but the dot learning on the banjo is slow going - my child hoovers up all major practice time...

I'm pretty sure Carl (Anderton) has tabbed it...check with him.

Sweet, thanks for the tip....

That's fabulous Greg! If it was any greasier it would sound like a Cab Calloway tune.

I was going to say modern-sounding but in this crowd "modern" is a relative thing!
