Mike Seeger's important survey of 19th and 20th century banjo styles teaches old-time pieces and traditional techniques. Each lesson features a complete performance of each song (played on a different banjo), detailed instruction and historical commentary.
Volume 1 focuses on a family of styles usually considered African in origin and known by many names such as Clawhammer, frailing and rapping. As well as these Clawhammer varieties, Seeger teaches you to develop a full range of repertoire and traditional techniques.
