With its wealth of information on how technique can be tastefully applied, Back-Up Banjo is the definitive book on the subject of Banjo accompaniment.

Janet Davis offers specific suggestions for accompanying a vocalist or instrumentalist in a variety of styles-- and then provides musical examples illustrating her points. Janet breaks her concepts down into their basic components, making them crystal clear in lay terms. The various back-up techniques are separated into categories determined by song tempo, by lead instrument being accompanied, and by the area of the fingerboard in which the chords are being played. In notation and tablature.

Includes an extended play audio recording which demonstrates the examples in the book. Access to audio and video downloads available online, which demonstrate the examples in the book.
