"I'm currently working through the "modern" version. Its been anout two weeks, and I'm much more confident when it comes to reading notation now. Some of the songs are kind of boring to play, but overall, whether it be a modern…"

"Hi Randy,  I use a fairly inexpensive laser printer that prints double sided for printing books and sheet music.  Print a copy, use a comb binder, write all over it, tear it up from dragging it all over the US, throw it away and print a…"

"I'm sorry!  Didn't mean to belabor anything.  I was just surprised to find these, since it seems as if everything one sees in music or book stores is all about bluegrass banjo and all using tablature.  When I got started, I…"

Mel Bay banjo books

I just came across volumes 1 and 2 of Mel Bay banjo method books, by Frank Bradbury, 1967, which teach the instrument as classic banjo!  4th string C tuning, music notation, etc.  I see that you don't have them in your "tutor books" section, but I guess that's because they are actually still available, so copyright laws and such.   I would be so bold as to recommend them, even though I'm new to classic banjo, but have a good deal of experience in other areas of music, including classical…See More

"Thank you!  That is what I was guessing was the case.  I also play classical guitar, so was thinking of writing accompaniments using it.  If I do, I'd post them."

Accompaniments?

Hello England and world from a small town in Southern Oregon U.S.A !  What fun to discover classic banjo, even 100 or so years late.The only piece I've worked on much so far is Colorado Buck Dance, but I've printed some others and slowly gone through them.Question: are some of these supposed to be accompanied solos?  Some sound quite complete with just the banjo, while others seem as if they could use even a simple boom-chick background.  Thanks for your input!See More
