Steve Martin is a comedian, novelist, screenwriter, actor and many other things, but his first love is the banjo. His recent hit CD, The Crow, features 15 original tunes in both clawhammer and Scruggs style. This book of tablature, accurately transcribed by Tony Trischka, is a great learning tool for aspiring players. Also includes an introduction and tuning notes from Tony.

    I am only a back porch muscian. I play several instruments including clawhammer banjo, since the 60's. Steve, Tony, Tim, Dolly, thanks a million. My favorite is Pretty Flowers which has been #1 on the household hit parade for weeks and weeks now. I had to transcribe it into...

    regular notation for the fiddle, but that was easy enuf. I saw the comment that Steve likes tablature, but both tabs and regular notes would have been nice. I am surprized you didn't talk John McKuen into getting into the mix. Please please keep up the great collaborations. Steve, this has to be a real tribute to the kind of guy you must be. My brother gave me the CD as a present. I would definitely buy both and not the book alone.
