The solos are written in both standard notation and tablature and whilst writing the arrangements, the author considered the small hands of children. Each tune is in the first position and there are no stretches that present inordinate technical difficulties.
Every song in the book is included on the online audio link. The tunes are recorded at a moderate speed and include count-off notes and rhythm guitar accompaniment.
Finally! A chord book written for the young beginner (or even beginners of any age) showing a creative and simple way to learn and play banjo chords. Chords are taught beginning with the most essential to more advanced. Chords are presented with exercises that build upon each other and eventually lead the student to playing logical and common chord progressions. These progressions include I-iii-vi-ii-V-I and twelve bar blues in many different keys. Chords are shown in chord diagram form with photographs showing finger positions in relationship to the fretboard. Examples and exercises are presented in strum bar notation.
