Whelpley’s Jig

From Buckley’s Banjo Method, 1860. I’m dropping the triplet from the 8th measure because there’s something about the seventh measure that’s messing with my right hand position when I get to the eighth. Needs work.

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.
