This one comes from the early 'guitar' style of Buckley's Banjo Guide. Lots of fun music in these old books. Again in the low A tuning, and gut strung. The banjo is by Luke Mercier, and based on a very early Fairbanks. It still retains some of the old minstrel-style tub features, while hinting at things to come. A transitional banjo for transitional music. I've played this music on 'modern' banjos, i.e. post 1900, and it just doesn't sound right. Hope you like it.

Think I would like to add those three to my " to learn " list.
