10 Pieces from Buckley's Banjo Guide of 1868

10 Pieces from Buckley's Banjo Guide of 1868


Ten selections from Buckley's Banjo Guide of 1868! These are transposed a minor third up from the original book so they sit perfectly on a modern banjo in C tuning, gCGBD. But since they are presented as tablature-only edition, any relative tuning will work great. The song included here are: Contraband Jig, Pea Nut Girl, Scotch Jig, Spalding's Jigs (all five tunes), Turn Up Jack (Jig), and Viva La America. You can hear MIDI renditions of these 10 solos on my Soundcloud playlist here. Check out my blog for free samples as well! PDF download only. All 10 tunes on 9 pages of tablature with facsimilies of the original score on each page.
