Contents Include: Here is the most comprehensive banjo book ever written. Tony Trischka and Pete Wernick spent four years researching, organizing and fine tuning this project with staggering results: over 400 pages of interviews, tunes, photos and analysis, covering every conceivable aspect of the three-finger style. Players at every level will benefit immeasurably from the information gathered here. This book focuses on eighteen banjoists who have made significant contributions to their field: Earl Scruggs, Don Reno, Snuffy Jenkins, Ralph Stanley, Sonny Osborne, Allen Shelton, J. D. Crowe, Bill Keith, John Hickman, Alan Munde, Ben Eldridge, John Hartford, Pete Wernick, Tony Trischka, Bela Fleck, Butch Robins, Larry McNeely, and Pat Cloud. Each chapter contains a short biography, a lengthy interview, illustrative photos (detailing hand position, pick placement and banjo of choice), and a selection of their best-known tunes in tablature (with accompanying analyses). Though not an instruction book, per se, these pages contain a wealth of information and music. 414 pages.
