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.
Excellent book for beginners as with all Geoff Hohwald books. The online lessons are very good. I have tried several beginners books and the Geoff Hohwald ones have been the most enjoyable and have improved my banjo playing the most.
Pay good attention. 1. This is a flimsy "book" which looks like something you'd pick up for free in a car show room. It is not spine backed so highly inconvenient for playing from. It is literally wafer thin but very wide but with large writing inside , in an attempt to make the flimsy content seem more. There is no CD or Video included it is only online access. The actual tutoring is extremely poor. If you're a beginner go for the Wayne Erbsen book not this over priced gimmick book. The only reason most consider getting this is for the so called easy version of duelling banjos. It's better if you just pay a couple of bucks and download the banjo tab for the song than buy this book. I'm shocked why anyone would give this 5 stars. Almost a complete waste of money, worth 3 bucks if that. Save the money for some high quality American banjo strings.
