Complete Book of Irish & Celtic 5-String Banjo

Complete Book of Irish & Celtic 5-String Banjo composed by Tom Hanway. For Banjo (5-String). Perfect binding, Solos. Complete. Celtic/Irish. Intermediate. Book/CD Set. 184 pages. Published by Mel Bay Publications, Inc (MB.95759BCD).

ISBN 9780786665822. Celtic/Irish. 8.75 x 11.75 inches.

An important anthology of Irish and Celtic solos for the 5-string banjo featuring a comprehensive, scholarly treatise on the history, techniques, and etiquette of playing the banjo in the Celtic tradition. Includes segments on tuning, pick preferences, and tablature reading followed by 101 jigs, slides, polkas, slip jigs, reels, hornpipes, strathspeys, O'Carolan tunes, plus a special section of North American Celtic tunes. A generous collection of photos of Irish folk musicians, street scenes, and archaeological sites further enhances this fabulous book. All of the solos included here are written in 5-string banjo tablature only with a few tunes set in unusual banjo tunings. The appendices provide a sizable glossary and a wealth of information regarding soloists and groups playing Celtic music, Irish festivals, music publications, on-line computer resources, cultural organizations, and more. If you are serious about playing Celtic music on the 5-string banjo, or if you don't play the banjo but simply want to expand your knowledge of the Celtic music tradition-you owe yourself this book. The first-ever CD collection of Irish and Celtic music for 5-string banjo provides 68 lovely melodies and demonstrates revolutionary techniques for playing highly ornamented tunes and rolling back-up. Recorded in stereo with virtuosos Gabriel Donohue (steel- and nylon-string guitar and piano) and Robbie Walsh (bodhran- frame drum played with a stick), the five-string banjo is "out front" and plays through each melody in real-life tempo with authentic Celtic chordal and rhythmic backing. The recording features the music of all Six Celtic Nations and includes jigs, reels, hornpipes, slides, polkas, marches, country dances, larides, andros, slipjigs, strathspeys, airs and O'Carolan tunes. 35 songs in the book are not on the CD.

  • December 23, 2008 Highly recommended - lots of tunes!

    This book/CD has a huge collection of tunes from all six Celtic nations, with a focus on playing Celtic melodies note-for-note. It's really an authentic Celtic approach - not a bluegrass or jazz one. The exercises on Celtic ornamentation, triplets and back-up patterns are very useful...

    . The companion CD with chord-backing (guitar, piano and bodhran) makes this a must-have collection. The glossary is very interesting. Nice pics and historical anecdotes too.

  • September 23, 2008 Lacks critical areas

    No chords, no keys sigs, no notes. Just straight tab. Not all that useful for someone looking to play backup in a jam. The backup rolls are not useable: how do you know when to apply chord shapes?

  • May 01, 2008 Highly Instructional and heart-warming

    Having relinquished my banjo playing in the eighties, I was inspired to take it up again after hearing Alison Browne perform some celtic tunes fused with jazz and bluegrass. However, my fingers were quite rusty (no having played for over 20 years) and I needed some sort of structured method...

    of getting back up to speed, and to develop my technique to play Celtic tunes (I come from Ireland originally). When I purchased this book I was expecting a book of instruciton, but never expected such detail, research, and history about the culture of Celtic music, bluegrass, etc. It's a masterpiece of stimulating challenge. Well done! Gerry Madigan

  • June 06, 2007 Great for the Scruggs Pickers

    Hanway does a great job of providing hardcore celtic tunes for the interested bluegrass banjo picker. The tab, when combined with the accompanying CD, serves as an excellent tool to make the transition to Celtic music. The timing and right hand techniques take a bit of getting used to, but...

    once you get the basic feel for the tune(s), it's a hoot!
