The Complete Tune Playing Toolkit For 5-String Banjo

Photo for Ad 196920

This book is designed to be a “one-stop shop” for tune playing on the 3-finger style 5-string banjo. It contains the scales, techniques, and theory that you need to become an accomplished melody player, presented in a structured way to help you make the most of your practice time. These skills are then applied to a wide-ranging collection of 40 reels, jigs, polkas, and old-time tunes spanning the American, Irish, and Scottish traditions.

The Toolkit features over 100 downloadable audio tracks including exercises, examples and guitar backup for all of the pieces to ensure an enjoyable learning experience. Suggested accompaniment chords are also provided to facilitate jamming with friends. Written in banjo tablature almost entirely in gDGBD tuning, a few arrangements require single-string tuning alterations, and a capo is occasionally needed to play a whole step higher. Although written for the intermediate to advanced player, extensive right and left-hand fingerings are provided to facilitate the flow and ornamentation of these timeless melodies.

Buzzard Banjo - Clawhammer Style By Dan Levenson

Photo for Ad 196791

Provides the intermediate clawhammer (5-string) banjo player with a fresh repertoire of 21 traditional and 5 original tunes as played by the author with the Boiled Buzzards Old Time String Band. The book briefly addresses clawhammer basics with a few pages of exercises and scales before presenting the tunes. The banjo tunings in this book are: double C tuning (gCGCD), modified double C tuning (eCGCD), G tuning (GDGBD), A tuning (aEAC#E), D tuning (aDADE), and Double-D tuning drop 5th (f#DADE). Written in banjo tablature only with suggested backup chords. Voted one of the top 10 clawhammer banjo players by "Banjo Newsletter" readers, Levenson advises the reader that the tablature in this book is to be used only as a guide and to "play the tune as you hear it, not slavishly as written". This approach allows the reader to play within his/her style and level of ability. Includes access to online audio.

Bach For Banjo

Photo for Ad 196319

The banjo shares many of the same sonic qualities as a harpsichord, so although it's so closely associated with more homespun genres, the instrument actually lends itself very well to classical music! The pieces in Bach for Banjo are in tablature only with chord symbols, arranged at the beginning to intermediate level for five-string banjo players. As in classical guitar arrangements, the melody and harmony are combined. Most pieces are on facing pages with no page turns required, and beginners can pick through the selections at a slow pace. The book features just the best-known parts of 20 beloved Bach pieces: Air (Air On The G String), Arioso, Be Thou With Me, Bourree, Brandenburg Concerto No. 3, Cello Suite No. 5, BWV 1011 "Gavotte I", Cello Suite No. 6, BWV 1012 "Gavotte I", Cello Suite No. 3, BWV 1009 "Bourree I", Chorale, Jesu, Joy Of Man's Desiring, Keep, O My Spirit, Little Prelude No. 2 in C Major, Minuet I (Anna Magdalena), Minuet In G, Prelude (Cello Suite No. 1), Prelude (Vln.

Early 5-String Banjo Solos

Photo for Ad 196091

Five-string banjo enthusiasts who play in the stroke, clawhammer or guitar styles will enjoy these 50 melodic, tab-only arrangements. The collection is unique in that it includes reels, polkas, jigs, hornpipes, minstrel songs, ballads, light classics, and a Christmas tune--nearly all in C tuning with the fourth string a step lower than the typical 5-string G tuning. Well-known classical and popular composers: Beethoven, Foster, and Vivaldi, plus collector/historian-authors: Converse, Emmett, Howe, Kerr, O’Neill, and Ryan--are all represented in this book.

With the exception of two Twiss originals, the music was chosen from sources available circa 1840-1890. Some of these settings can be used as accompaniment to unison singing; all are designed to lie well on the 5-string fretboard for optimal playability. Using a custom-built fretted, nylon-string banjo, the author has provided online recordings of every tune for ease of learning.

Banjo Picking Tunes - An Early American Christmas

Photo for Ad 196003

This collection includes intermediate to advanced arrangements of 17 Early American carols for the 5-string banjo in 3-finger style. These melody/chord arrangements are in tablature only in gDGBD tuning using common chord shapes for the most part.

The author’s experience with the classic guitar shines through in these tasteful settings, which include imaginative introductions, occasional key modulations and even a carol attributed to the Huron tribe.

Beyond The Waterfall - Extraordinary Tunes For Banjo

Photo for Ad 195952

You've played "Over the Waterfall," marched along to "Soldier's Joy" and perhaps even found your fortune while trotting along on that "Old Spotted Pony." Now it's time to take the next step; beyond the waterfall to the land of lesser-played tunes.

Inside this volume are 40 challenging, unusual, interesting and dare I say- extraordinary tunes. As it includes standard notation, clawhammer banjo tablature, suggested chords and fiddle bow markings, this book is truly suitable for anyone. A number of old-time songs also include lyrics, so you can sing these great songs in the old-time style.

Most of the tunes include notes about their history and recording references are provided if you wish to hear how they were played and sung "way back when". I encourage you to take the time to do that. It may jump start your stalled old-time music collection or as some folks say, "start you a new one".
