Product description

Review

This is probably the ultimate beginners guide for how to play Scruggs style. You start out with a simple melody line which you later can add the, ice cold licks, the cool licks, the warm licks, the hot licks and in the end the RED HOT LICKS. This is a little book with a great layout. I think everybody from 5 years to 110 with some reading skills and a CD player can learn to play bluegrass banjo with this book. --Ivar R. --This text refers to the spiral_bound edition.
