Mel Bay has just released my new book/CD Arranging Tunes For Solo Banjo. It covers a lot of concepts and techniques for playing chord solos. It is designed for developing solos for slow songs and using the same ideas you can also create back up for slow songs. It covers how to connect chords with melody, diatonic chords, dominant chords, embellished and altered chords and how they can be used. www.almundesbanjocollege.com.

I had a really wonderful time in California playing and conducting workshops in San Diego, LA, San Luis Obispo, and the SF area. Thanks to all that came out. Hope to do it all again next fall or early 2014 sometime.
It is a good book even if I say so myself.

I got the book and CD today. The music sounds wonderful. The book content looks fantastic. Just what I was looking for. One thing that would have been nice, though, is to have two versions of the songs on the CD. One slow version and another version more up to speed. Not a big deal. I'm looking forward to going through the book.
