Old-Time Festival Tunes for Clawhammer Banjo

Old-Time Festival Tunes for Clawhammer Banjo composed by Dan Levenson. For Banjo (5-String). Spiral, Songbook. Old Time. Beginning-Intermediate. Book/2-CD Set. 248 pages. Published by Mel Bay Publications, Inc (MB.20313BCD).

ISBN 9780786675197. Old Time. 8.75 x 11.75 inches.

This book and two CD set is intended to be a tune repertoire book. It includes over 100 Old-Time festival favorites. Some are cliche, others unusual, some easy, some difficult. The book contains 2 lines of tablature (one basic and one advanced) as well as standard notation and suggested chords. The basic version should be playable by those with general clawhammer skills. The advanced version will require more time and finesse as it is more ornamental (often more than just melodic) and may include less than intuitive ways of playing some passages.
