More New Stuff

Posted by alan munde on Tuesday, March 3, 2009

My latest book Banjo for the Young Beginner published by Mel Bay will be out  March, 2009.  It is a well thought out introduction of bluegrass banjo for those younger, actually anyage, beginners who have no experience with stringed instruments let alone the banjo.  I am happy with the way it came out and am hopeful for its success.

I have several other projects in the works

* the release of the Sam and Alan, Together Again for the First Time album in CD format.  This is a long unavailable product that is many peoples favorites.  It is a superior album for Sam Bush fans.  He is fantastic.  It has many original instrumentals by both Sam and me.

* the release of  a book/CD of my favorite of my albums In The Tradition.

* the release of a book/CD tunes associated with the Country Gazette album Strictly Instrumental

* the release of a book/CD of Poor Richard's Almanac.  This is the first recording for Sam Bush, Wayne Stewart, and me.  We did this in Wayne's grandmother's house in Hopkinsville, Ky in 1969 just before I was to leave for the draft (they turned me down).  It is cited in Neil Rosenberg's book Bluegrass: A History as a seminal recording.

* the inclusion of downloadable video instructional lessons on my web site.  I teach "Peaches and Cream," "Uncle Clooney Played the Banjo" "The Virginia Boys" (a tune in B flat) and others.  What tunes would like to see in this format?

* I have a busy performance and workshop schedule.

Forr all the above and much more see

Thanks, Alan Munde

I'll see what I can find.  I don't remember exactly what I did but maybe I wrote it out.  Again I will check.  Thanks, Alan
