Good clear instruction.

DaveS, 23.12.2013
You can't go wrong with this book, clear concise instruction.
A small cautionary word; if you are new to banjo, like me, look up how to check the bridge placement and set it up before trying to play. It's the only information missing, and it's the reason my banjo was in a charity shop. It was in excellent new condition and originally cost e300+ if bought in Thomann. I got it for e65 because it was shipped with the bridge well out of place, the head not tight enough and the action slightly high. Otherwise it will always be out of tune.

For absolute beginners

baritonist, 22.10.2013
With this beginner book for aspiring banjo players, the author has done everything right. It is really also aimed at bloody beginners without previous knowledge.
As a saxophonist, I already had knowledge and guitar I had played before, so I had the first 20 pages in a rush through one afternoon.

Nevertheless, they were very worth reading, because you can learn a lot about the instrument and the absolute basics, such as posture, voices, pages and learn to play with picks.

Also positive are the many and especially large pictures with the smallest hand movement is explained. There is also a CD that you can play very well.

So if you want to start seriously with the banjo, here is a good start.
