Briggs’ Banjo Instructor (1855)

“Containing the elementary principles of music,
together with examples and lessons, …
to which is added a choice collection of pieces,
numbering over fifty
popular dances, polkas, melodies, &c. &c.,
many of which have never before been published.
Composed and arranged expressly for this work.”

(Tim Twiss offers complete recordings of many early banjo guides at his site.)
