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.
Really interesting book, got lots of old time music and lots information about the people / musicians who made the music also some old photographs of them, Excellent book whether your a Banjo Picker or not...
As a long-time enthusiast of American Old Time and Bluegrass music, I felt it was high time I expanded my library of books on the subject.Whenever I get round to actually reading them is a matter of conjecture! But suffice to say a quick appraisal of the contents of this book makes it a very attractive proposition, inviting me to pore over it a.s.a.p.
An allround and important guide into the beginning studies of Blue Grass and the culture behind the Music. I highly recommend it to those, like myself, who knew Little or nothing of the Music and culture, but loved it nonetheless !
I've strung up a spruce topped Lanikai tenor ukulele in low G using a Worth brown low G string. I've enjoyed collecting folk songs to play and sing using this instrument. I found this book interesting in giving a history of folk and bluegrass music. I also discovered new songs I hadn't been aware of before. I use Google to search for more chords and verses and come up with very nice versions of the songs. This book was worth every penny and even gives just enough music theory to be helpful but not overwhelming. Highly recommended!
