Tim Twiss: Early Banjo

Submitted by retread on 1/21/2013

Where Purchased: From Tim Twiss, BHO classified

Overall Comments

The spiral-bound book is nicely laid out, with clearly printed tabs for the first ten tunes, plus more tunes in standard notation, reproduced from their 19th-century sources. The accompanying CD, with each track corresponding to one of the tunes printed in the book, doesn't merely aid the instruction - it's a pleasure to listen to in its own right. The set is an accessible and enjoyable introduction to early banjo. Tabs for ALL the tunes would make it even better, but I guess that would've raised the (very reasonable) price. Well worth picking up.

Overall Rating: 10
