In 2003 Patrick Costello set out to write down some tips on playing the five-string banjo for an after school banjo club. A few weeks later the original collection of notes had grown into a book. A few years later that book was, and still is, inspiring people all over the world to start making music with the five-string banjo.
The How and the Tao of Old Time Banjo has a lifetime of information stuffed into its 168 pages. From the absolute basic picking skills to music theory and tips on improvisation, The How and the Tao of Old Time Banjo presents folk music as something alive. Something to explore and take part in within your own community.
The How and the Tao of Old Time Banjo is not a book that you read once and put away. Because it was originally written for young banjo students, The How and the Tao of Old Time Banjo is a book that you will come to again and again as you make your journey in life as a folk musician.
