In this revolutionary follow-up to The How and the Tao of Old Time Banjo Patrick Costello tears down the artificial boundaries imposed on old time banjo over the last twenty years and presents frailing banjo in a manner that gives the reader the know-how to play anything, anywhere with anyone.
This is not a tune book or a study of Appalachian banjo styles. A Book Of Five Strings is a guide to understanding and mastering the techniques that form the core skill set of old time banjo. Music theory, improvisation, rhythm and other topics are covered along with left and right hand exercises to build up your coordination and overall understanding of the fretboard. There is even instruction on how to use old time banjo techniques in bluegrass and blues settings.
A Book Of Five Strings is a must-have for any student or teacher of old time banjo who wants a better understanding of old time banjo and the language of music.
