BrilliantReviewed in the United Kingdom on 16 January 2021
I am an ok guitar player and have always wanted to play the banjo but was concerned that it would be too difficult. I purchased a banjo for Christmas 2020 and, after reading the reviews, used this tutorial to learn. At first it came as a shock to find the fingering for the chords are completely different to the guitar. However, the instructions are so clear and the lessons so enjoyable, I am now playing 4 of the songs from the book after only 3 weeks. All the other good reviews are true.
