Mark Geslison: 50 Tunes For Banjo, Volume 1 (Book/Online Audio)

Books and Digital Audio | Banjo

Catalogue No: MLB99939M
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

50 Tunes For Banjo contains a selection of Bluegrass, Old Time and Celtic tunes for ensembles, families and individuals. This book contains the same tunes as those found in the other 4 books of the series, but the tunes in this one are carefully arranged for the Banjo.

The parts in this book range from beginner to advanced. Though many parts are arranged in standard "Scruggs" style, some are arranged in frailing or clawhammer style, and many are arranged in melodic style. Where "Scruggs" style is considered, less melody / more finger roll pattern, melodic style, as the name implies, is more melody / less finger roll pattern. Clawhammer style uses no finger roll patterns; instead, it is made up of a melody within a strumming rhythm pattern.

This book includes access to online audio recordings of the tunes performed by a full band.
