New budget banjo recommendations.

I would like to buy a banjo to use everyday and take anywhere so that I can keep my 1880/90s instrument for playing only at home. As a beginner with a particular interest in the late 19th century…Continue

"Hi Par, In a recent post of mine, the subject of historical recreation was touched upon, with comments from Jody and Joel. My idea appears to be similar to yours, in that only the music of a certain period in time is played. In my case, I have set…"

"Jody, thank you for that information. I will have a look at it. Joel, what I should have said was, the period around 1880 which as you say, was when the banjo began to become popular in England. In 2011, I first took up the banjo when I bought an…"

Joel Hooks replied to IAN SALTER's discussion RECOMMENDATION FOR BEGINNER'S.
"Hi Ian,  what do you mean by "that period?" As far as I can tell, the English did not get "serious" about the banjo until the mid 1880s.  This aligns with the pitch change of the banjo up to "Concert C"-- or…"

RECOMMENDATION FOR BEGINNER'S.

For anyone interested in playing music that predates ragtime, I recommend Harry Turner's 'Melodious Banjo Studies And Exercises', that is in the Tutor Books section.It was written for 'Young Students', with second parts for a 'Master'.I have searched the archives and it doesn't appear to have been mentioned before. From this beginner's point of view, it is a very enjoyable and satisfying collection of compositions.I'd like to know if anyone agrees with me.Kind regards, Ian.See More

Thanks Ian - I hope you are enjoying learning classic banjo.  Are you new to playing the banjo or have you migrated over from another style of banjo playing? Let me know if I can be of any help.
