Minstrel Banjo

For enthusiasts of early banjo

This one is rather obscure, and found in the Dan Emmett manuscript collection, listed as no. 12 in his own handwriting. It has some funky syncopated figures.

Very nice Tim. That arpeggio at the beginning looks pretty tricky. Thanks for posting the scores.

Thanks Paul. Actually not....you have 2 open strings to use - one at each end of it. Articulate with a slur...and it slides right out from under the fingers.

Looking forward to trying it when I get back home...

Nice, Tim.  I agree, nice to see the actual notation, too.   :)

It's good to see you're back.  Minnick's is my favorite of your recent postings.
