    I am a closet banjo picker and I have used Fred Sokolow's fretboard book for the banjo for years and love it. I bought his blues book for my son and his understanding of the fretboard below the 5th fret has increased dramatically. I highly recommend this book for...

    any beginner/intermediate guitar player who likes to play the blues and is ready to move down the fretboard.
