If you want basic Clawhammer instruction, there are a slew of other books as well as a bunch of online guides to get you there. Probably the best thing to do is find a local teacher though...very hard to beat personal instruction, esp. at the very beginning.
Many ways to skin that cat...gonna be confusing at first! Personally, unless you are doing the tackhead thing for historical reenactment (or simply because you love the tunes of the period), I would suggest starting with beginning Clawhammer instruction.

Congrats on the Prust. It's a sweet banjo. I don't do any minstrel style, just regular clawhammer, although I did put Nylgut Minstrel strings on so I could tune it lower. Love that deep growly sound! Have fun, and welcome to the BHO!
