    If you are serious about the banjo and have some basic songs under your belt and are interested in hearing, and playing, banjo in many different styles I would suggest you invest in this book. The songs in here are awesome, and it will take some time to learn them...

    well. 6 cd's, 40 pages chock full of bad A Bela tunes. I'm lovin' it, well worth the money to me.
