This is a beautiful piece by one of America’s best banjo composers, Parke Hunter, 1876-1912. I’m recording wav/mp3 files of all the main pieces in Mel Bay’s Banjo Method, actually written by the late Frank Bradbury. This piece stood out as being very different to the others in the book. By the way, it is a fantastic book for learning to read standard notation on the banjo. My sight-reading ability has improved dramatically while working through the book. Eventually Mel Bay will host the files on their site.
Ballad in Eb for banjo – Parke Hunter

Hi you mention ‘Mel Bay’s Banjo Method’ but there appear to be several versions of this publication, tenor banjo, bluegrass banjo, c tuning banjo etc. I would be interested to know which version you are referring to? Thanks!
