  • November 26, 2007 Excellent Performance Sound

    Jack Hatfield has written by far the best gospel banjo tab book that I have come across so far. This book has allowed me to learn many great songs for the Lord on my banjo. Most important though is the fact that the melody of each song is strong but...

    not alone. There are good "filler" notes to keep the song rolling. Each song has a beginner/intermediate version & an advanced version for anyone who is feeling froggy. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to play gospel banjo. EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT!

  • September 10, 2007 Play with the Angels

    This book and accompanying CD are first class. Recommend for anyone including beginners because it will spur you on (as it has me). The tablature presentation is excellent.
