Coon Hunt Walk Around

From Frank B. Converse’s ‘Banjo Without A Master’ (The “Yellow Book”), 1865. Although now that I go back and look at the source I see it doesn’t call for those first 8 bars to be repeated.

What Is This?

Long before jazz, old-time, or bluegrass, the banjo was associated with very different musical styles, now largely forgotten.

The music on this site is taken from (or inspired by) period sources from the 1800s through the early 1900s.
