To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Very good product. Only complaint is the rythem he shows you is not what he plays in the songs. Takes a bit to figure this out when you are new. Also the tabs are a bit behind what is being played. But overall very good for begginers.
An excellent beginner's book. Geoff's video instruction is outstanding and very user friendly. The CDs are adaptable to all playing levels as you progress. I use the drills and exercises every practice session, and my accuracy and speed are improving daily. Only one negative: this book is geared almost solely to accompaniment and not solo work; words are not included, hence you never get the feel for the song as it is supposed to be played. I began my banjo-playing journey at the age of 72 about four month's ago with Wayne Erbsen's "Bluegrass Banjo For The Complete Ignoramus." This book fills in the gaps left out of "Banjo Primer..." In my opinion, using these books in conjunction raises the rating of both to solid 5 stars.
