I have read it from cover to cover many times and I have learnt something new every time I read it. As a complete novice it has put me on the right path to learn and play this wonderful instrument.
It takes you through the anatomy of a 5 string banjo, how to change strings, how to tune it, how to hold it, and more importantly how to learn to play it.
When you have followed this book, you will be able to play songs using basic chords You will be able to read and understand how banjo music
is written. You will learn to play rolls which are the building blocks of bluegrass banjo music. I cannot recommend this book more highly.
The free tutorial CD that comes with this book is outstanding.
If you play another stringed instrument such as a guitar, then you may find the first half of the book a bit too basic. I already play guitar so for me I jumped well over half, and being a short book there wasn't much left for me to get from it. But then it is an ABSOLUTE beginners book and with that in mind, it;s an excellent and friendly place to start.
If you are also such a beginner, find a real beginners book, or get onto Youtube to learn the basics before buying a "basic' book.
Lots of fun at the min..
Based on my experience I would recommend this book.
