Minstrel Banjo

For enthusiasts of early banjo

I had briefly discussed this tune in my presentation on Emmett manuscript tunes at AEBG III. I am posting this "aural record" (to borrow a phrase from Greg)--definitely not a polished performance--along with the dots (in the Photos section) at the request of Ian Bell and Tim Twiss. I am playing it as though my banjo is in the eAEG#B tuning; it is actually in the dGDF#A tuning, so the notes you hear are a whole tone lower than those written. You also hear a metronome, since I needed it to keep from shortening the rests and to stay on the beat.

Nice "aural record" Bob!!! Well played and very lyrical. I love this piece. We should all have this one down for AEBG IV.
