The banjo is an instrument with a flavor and character all its own. It is a "homegrown" American instrument and the various styles of banjo music reflect periods in this country's history. Riverboat Banjo is a glimpse into one such period. The songs are arranged to recapture the vitality and happiness found in the music played on riverboats. The songs, arranged for solo and accompaniment, may be played by tenor, 5-string or plectrum banjo. The style of banjo music contained in this book is quite infectious. Standard notation only.
