    Difficulty Level:
  • April 12, 2008 The Banjo Player's Songbook

    It has all the music titles a banjo player would want very complete, but very simplified single note melody notation. Which would be good for quick site reading group sing along.

    Difficulty Level:
  • April 19, 2007 A must have.

    This book has everthing you could want. Keys of the songs, words of the songs, and some basic tab as well. And what a variety of songs. Over 200 in all. A banjo should not be limited to bluegrass, which I love to play. This book shows it. Great for...

    clawhammer players. I'm an intermediate player and find this book a "Find". I can add my own licks or transpose the chords. Easy to follow. A must have collection for your sheet music library.
