This book is designed to be a one-stop shop for tune playing on the 3-finger style 5-string banjo. It contains the scales, techniques, and theory that you need to become an accomplished melody player, presented in a structured way to help you make the most of your practice time. These skills are then applied to a wide-ranging collection of 40 reels, jigs, polkas, and old-time tunes spanning the American, Irish, and Scottish traditions. The Toolkit features over 100 downloadable audio tracks including exercises, examples and guitar backup for all of the pieces to ensure an enjoyable learning experience. Suggested accompaniment chords are also provided to facilitate jamming with friends. Written in banjo tablature almost entirely in gDGBD tuning, a few arrangements require single-string tuning alterations, and a capo is occasionally needed to play a whole step higher. Although written for the intermediate to advanced player, extensive right and left-hand fingerings are provided to facilitate the flow and ornamentation of these timeless melodies. Includes access to online audio.
