Minstrel Banjo

For enthusiasts of early banjo

Arrangement by S. E. Turner

This isn't a "real" minstrel banjo vid, but "Home Sweet Home" was a staunch minstrel banjo standard and Frank Converse played a set of tremolo variations to this tune which were probably similar to this. The first part is finger tremolo (similar to duo style on the mandolin or plectrum banjo) and the last bit is chord tremolo, commonly known as the "finger wiggle" in Classic banjo circles.

This Classic banjo arrangement was published in BMG magazine.
