The Complete Banjo Book contains no text and should not be considered a method book, but rather a superb collection of intermediate to advanced solos. These pieces reflect contemporary concepts of both Scruggs style and melodic/chromatic styling. While most of these tunes are written in both standard notation and tablature, a few are in tab only.Contents :
