  • April 28, 2012 Great banjo tunes.

    I am still learning how to play the banjo and loving the sounds of ringing banjo notes. I bought this book to memorize famous songs. Its just banjo tabulatures but that is what I want anyway. It has "Amazing Grace" in finger picking style and that is what prompt me...

    to get this book. I have absolutely no regrets. And its a bargain.

    Difficulty Level:
  • April 19, 2007 For tab or chords.

    When I saw this was a book/cd combo, I thought that there was an error in the pricing. It's not. Janet did a wonderful job here in showing how to play songs in tab or with chords. She gives you enough to where you can follow her lead...

    but also gives you enough to expand these songs on your own. I'm an intermediate player and found by following her set up, I can add my own licks, if appropriate. Nice and compact and the CD is a great help. I love the history she includes with the songs. Love it.
