Overall Comments

One of the greatest books I've ever bought about the banjo. 400 + pages packed with indepth intervies from 18 of the all time greats. A graph detailing set up of banjo, string gaugesm hours practiced, weather they read tab etc. from 62 banjo players. Great vintage photos, tab from the masters themselves and more. These are just some of the great things packed into this book. At $60 it is well worth the price! It is essential for anyone wanting to know more "banjo" and not just more tab, but more about how and why each of these players does what they do. Research and interviews conducted by two masters themselves (They each have a section too) written with a true passion for the banjo. It really is a must for any banjo player, it will offer hours of reading enjoyment again and again.

Overall Rating: 10
