    I have not actually finished learning the whole book yet, but am enjoying the challenge. I am a bit more advanced than a beginner and this book stretches me a little more (which is what I want). The cd (which is included) is helpful, and of course you can always...

    pause it while you try to get the hang of the rolls that she is teaching. In other words you can go at your own speed. I have bought other books on banjo tunes that are far too easy, so I recomend this for an intermediate player.
