I recently added another chunk of music to the Internet Archive. I have just about broke 600 documents that are banjo related (there are a few harmonica related things and a couple guitar books).

Of special interest is Alfred Cammeyer's book "My Adventuresome Banjo" which is a fun read. Cammeyer "invented" the Zither Banjo.

I have also added some banjo catalogs.

With the sheet music, folios, and tutors, I estimate that there is well over 1000 banjo solos. That is a lot of music but only scratches the surface of what was published.

I have not kept track of the time I have spent scanning this stuff. But the documents are all public domain so you own them and you should use your property.

Thanks to trapdoor2 for sending all the John Alvey Turner folios (and other stuff over the years).

I just got another stack of A notation music (mostly 1880s-1890s) and I'll start chipping away at scanning that. I'll post when I get that added.

My pleasure, Joel. I'll bring the "Superior" up to the rally.

Wow, what an amazing resource! Thanks for all you have done. Now to find something to play there. I checked out Over the Waves because my wife hates when I play it on the fiddle or mandolin or just play it.
