He explores in simple yet expansive detail how to create and develop variations, how, through the use of ornamentation, to bring subtle rhythm and phrasing to your playing, how and when to use chords and harmony to add interest to your music and perhaps most importantly, how to bring total relaxation to your playing. This new book is a treasure trove of pull-offs, hammer-ons, slides, triplets, trebles, crab-walk triplets, double string trebles, the list goes on.

Enda takes a tune, plays it in its simplest form and then, one step at a time, demonstrates an abundance of new techniques to help you make the tune your own – to begin to develop your own unique style.

There is something for everyone at all stages of ability in this new book. All the ideas and techniques are simple in their make up yet add wonderful variety and charm to the music. There are also plenty of new challenging techniques for the more advanced players and a chapter on playing Old-Time American banjo on your Irish tenor!

The accompanying CD has all the exercises, examples and tunes played slowly and at pace. The book is written in stave notation and in tablature, making it of great use to mandolin players also.

Massively impressed with Enda Scahill's vol 2 banjo tutor. A perfect addition to vol 1 - There is plenty to get stuck into here. The book isn't thick but there is plenty of substance. I haven't the CDs are helpful too.
