Dozens of tunes most commonly played on the fiddle are arranged for 3 finger banjo, encompassing music from the American and British Isles fiddle traditions. Bluegrass, Celtic and old time tunes are included, presented in tablature, and played on the two accompanying audio CDs.
Trischka is well known for his many recordings of banjo music, but perhaps less so as an outstanding instructor of the instrument. He has authored a number of popular banjo books and DVDs, targeted at banjo players and students from rank beginners to serious practitioners.
This new Mel Bay title contains pieces that will be comfortable for new pickers, and others that would challenge long-time players.
Master Collection of Fiddle Tunes for Banjo should be available now wherever banjo instructional books are sold. The book runs 256 pages (spiral bound) and sells for $34.95.
