This book presents 31 of the most-loved old-time gospel songs arranged in the three-finger style, complete with musical notation, banjo tablature, chords and lyrics. Each song is presented first as a beginner-intermediate arrangement, played in the first position in Scruggs style. Most songs are then presented in an up-the-neck arrangement. The CD features five-string banjo solos played in three-finger style and accompanied by guitar, mandolin and bass. This is a split-track recording, the lead banjo is on one channel and the accompaniment instruments on the other. The CD can be used as a solo recording, a teaching recording or a play-along recording.
