This book, filled with some of the greatest banjo classics, is designed to help musicians develop basic bluegrass techniques, based on the styles of groups such as Bill Monroe and the Blue Grass Boys, Flatt and Scruggs and the Foggy Mountain Boys, the Stanley Brothers and the Clinch Mountain Boys. The banjo solos, featuring such classics as “The Ballad of Jed Clampett,” “Salty Dog Blues,” and “Jesse James,” are written out note-for-note in easy-to-follow tablature notation in the book. You listen to the complete version with soloist, then you step in as soloist with the great Country Cooking bluegrass band, featuring fiddle, guitar, mandolin, bass and vocals! Also includes basic techniques and pointers.

Performed by Peter Wernick, banjo

    This book was well done with many popular songs. Sheetmusic were great people to deal with. Prompt service and quick to react if you have a problem.

    The is for more experienced Banjo Players. This is not a good choice for a beginner. The CD is a waste of money.

  • February 01, 2005 Bluegrass Banjo

    The CD is fine and great for listening, but far too advanced for a beginner or even intermediate to keep up with (a Slowdowner would help). However, the book lacks full versions of a song, tabs are mediocre at best and are even missing for one song (Dark Hollow). Overall...

    I wouldn't recommend it to someone looking to improve his/her banjo playing.

    Difficulty Level:
    Early intermediate
  • October 27, 2004 Not complete

    If a book has songs in it. It should at least have each song completed, not most of it. Each song is good, but why bother making a book when the songs in the book are not complete.

    Difficulty Level:
  • July 28, 2004 Needs Updating

    Good: Selections, level of playing, quality of CD. Bad: Tablature is outdated style, a lot has to be inferred from the CD, this is NOT a beginner's system, though the description suggests it. Overpriced!
