Albert Baur - 19th-Century Banjo Music TAB and Score

Albert Baur’s The Banjoist’s Budget contains some of the most interesting 19th-century banjo music. There seem to be four main strands of repertoire therein: Minstrel, Irish, Clog Dancing, and Gilbert & Sullivan arrangements. The music can be played using the old minstrel Stroke technique, as detailed in Frank B. Converse’s Analytical Banjo Method of 1887, or with the modern Melodic Clawhammer technique (with much use of the thumb on all strings), or fingerstyle, as exemplified again in Converse’s Analytical.
