For those of you desiring to learn old-time banjo, or frailing banjo as it’s sometimes called, here is a resource you might want to check out. Patrick Costello has a book available called The How and the Tao of Old Time Banjo. If you want a print edition, you can order it from Amazon, or if you’d prefer free, you can read it online or download it here.
In addition to the How and Tao book, which is aimed more toward beginners, Costello also offers a book for more advanced banjo players entitled The Book of Five Strings. It is also available online as a free download.
