7 String banjo sheet music

I've been playing around with a 7 string banjo for about 6 months now and I'm am now looking for some 7 string sheet music. I'm currently working through what is available for the scan of  Ellis' Thorough School for the 6 or 7 String Banjo which is missing pages but is still a pretty solid Tutor.

Nightingale Rag..1914..Lester Sill

So far I've been unable to find any information about the composer which is a pity as this is a very well written example of ragtime and more compositions from him would have been welcome additions to the ragtime portfolio. It suits the banjo and is…See More

Under The Double Eagle..1893..J.F.Wagner.

This is my take on this great march. It's one I hadn't heard before until it was mentioned byJoel in his recent post. I resisted the temptation of looking at the Ellis version before I wrote this and I still haven't had a chance to compare. I took…See More
