How can I read sheet music and play tenor banjo melody chord solos?" Mel Bay's own step-by-step method for melody chord performance will show you precisely how it's done. Also suitable for tenor mandola. Written primarily in standard notation with tablature and fretboard diagrams given for chord patterns, this book might be considered a sequel to the Complete Tenor Banjo Method. After a few pages of elementary information, the author goes to the heart of the matter with challenging exercises and solos presented in order of difficulty in various keys. The book also includes a thorough education in chord construction from simple triads to thirteenth diminished ninth chords. Most importantly, the author offers a system for learning to apply tenor banjo chords in a creative manner.

    This is a must guide for those who want to be chord melody players. I love this book. I have been semi-pro for 20 years and when I picked up the tenor guitar I found this gem of a book. Simple exercises that help you find the right chord...

    in the right place while promoting muscle memory. I wish I found this 15 years ago!
