Public library copy.

I'm teaching myself to play banjo (picking style is my preferred method) while my wife teaches herself how to play the Cello. I work 5-10 hours a week of overtime but try to practice at least 30-minutes everyday. I've been watching You Tube clips everyday, reading articles online, and have a Bela Fleck how to play banjo tutorial dvd so when I'm not practicing I'm usually studying or thinking about improving.

Great book, I now have a digital copy to use as a resource.

Recommends it for: banjo lovers everywhere
I am only adding this because it consumed my life for a week. It's great. Especially if you have never even touched a banjo or any other musical instrument in your life. I found this a great tool in learning how to master the art of the a cd of sound examples is included! Fantastic. I would give it a thumbs up but im busy playing my banjo......okay that was cheesy(im sorry)
