In my latest video, I go over some BANJO BOOKS I recommend for beginners to intermediate players.
These books are ones that I’ve used and highly recommend. All of them I used at some point in my development as a player.
Here is the VIDEO:
Jack Hatfield Banjo Book https://amzn.to/2Appdjy
The Jack Hatfield book is great for beginner bluegrass banjo. He has the melody highlighted in the arrangements so you can see it, which is a nice unique feature of the book. Also, you will find the arrangements (at least most) a bit easier than what you will find in the Scruggs book
Melodic Banjo Book: https://amzn.to/2UCG4GJ
I learned A LOT of the melodic banjo stuff I play from this Melodic Banjo Book by Tony Trischka. In particular, the sections on Vic Jordan and Bill Keith.
Earl Scruggs Book: https://amzn.to/30ywHvx
I think it goes without saying you HAVE to get this book. I prefer the original 1968 version as the new version has some pretty ridiculous errors.
Acutab series https://amzn.to/3hjMmEL
I have the Bill Emerson Acutab book but there are other banjo personality books available as well; Scott Vestal for instance, if you are up for a serious challenge.
These book will take you through beginner to advanced material. They will certainly provide you with years worth of stuff to perfect.
