The distinctive sound of the 5-string Banjo is most usually associated with folk, country and bluegrass music...but this instrument can sound at home in lots of popular genres.

In this book you’ll find a superb collection of 20 favourite songs, all specially arranged to show off the adaptability of the Banjo.

Ho Hey and Wagon Wheel are naturals but you’ll also enjoy just how well hits by Ed Sheeran, Adele and The Who sound in 5-string Banjo arrangements.

Whatever your favourites, you’ll find plenty here to help you play, sing and extend your repertoire.
