    I'm an experienced guitar, and mandolin player. I've always wanted to pick up the 5-string banjo. I bought this book on a recommendation from the dealer I purchased my banjo. This book is extremely well written. Learning banjo tab has become second nature. The CD is first...

    rate too, with multiple tempos that are easy to emulate. Most of the mystery, and intimidation the banjo implies is put to rest with Dennis Caplinger's easy going style.
