Nedski’s Double Banjo Book of Fun

Nedski's Double Banjo Book of FunNed Luberecki, noted banjo picker, radio host and bluegrass bon vivant, has released a new book for five stringers convinced that a single banjo is simply not enough.

Nedski’s Double Banjo Book of Fun offers twin banjo arrangements for a dozen jam favorites, presented in tablature. It’s an ebook, offered for $10 on Ned’s web site, and available for instant download. Tunes include Bill Cheatham, Blackberry Blossom, Cripple Creek, John Hardy, John Henry, Little Maggie, Old Joe Clary, Red Haired Boy, Salt Creek, St. Anne’s Reel, Temperance Reel, and Will The Circle Be Unbroken.

Luberecki tells us that he never set out to create such a book.

Ned Luberecki“It’s something I did as a request for a banjo student at a camp once. He said that since he went to a lot of camps, and all his jamming buddies were banjo players, that he’d been looking for double banjo arrangements and couldn’t find any. Since he’d seen me with Trischka, he figured I might be a good guy to write one. So I tabbed out a handful and printed up 100 of them to try and test market them at banjo camps.
Two years later when I sold out of the original 100, I just put them up as as a download.”
All the tabs are clear and easy to read, with only a couple requiring skills beyond an intermediate picker. If double banjo sounds like fun, check out the book online.
