Banjo Strings From JustStrings.com

Photo for Ad 124635

A staple instrument in bluegrass, folk and country music, the banjo is a versatile stringed instrument that has evolved over the years into various forms. Whether it’s a 4-string, 5-string, 6-string or tenor banjo, the instrument originated in the American south during the 1800’s. We carry an extensive collection of banjo strings available in phosphor bronze, nickel or stainless steel. Manufactured by the most trusted names in banjo strings in the world, our banjo strings ensure your instrument produces the crisp, brilliant sound associated with the banjo. The tuning of the banjo differs depending on the type of instrument you have and the style of music you are playing. The most common in the United States today is the 5-string banjo, usually tuned G-D-G-B-D. The 4-string plectrum banjo is typically tuned in a C-G-B-D with a scale length of 26 to 28”. The 4-string tenor’s short scale length with 17 frets is most often tuned C-G-D-A. The 6-string banjo, sometimes referred to as a banjitar, is tuned in a standard guitar tuning. The type of banjo string you need for your ideal sound will depend on the brightness of your instrument. For example, stainless steel strings provide a brighter, more cutting tone than phosphor bronze strings, which are warmer sounding. JustStrings.com has just the banjo strings you are looking for at a great price and with our excellent customer service.

Pretty Good For A Girl: Women In Bluegrass

Photo for Ad 124631

Pretty Good For A Girl: Women In Bluegrass - OUT OF STOCK - The first book devoted entirely to women in bluegrass, Pretty Good for a Girl documents the lives of more than seventy women whose vibrant contributions to the development of bluegrass have been, for the most part, overlooked.

Accessibly written and organized by decade, the book begins with Sally Ann Forrester, who played accordion and sang with Bill Monroe's Blue Grass Boys from 1943 to 1946, and continues into the present with artists such as Alison Krauss, Rhonda Vincent, and the Dixie Chicks. Drawing from extensive interviews, well-known banjoist Murphy Hicks Henry gives voice to women performers and innovators throughout bluegrass's history, including such pioneers as Bessie Lee Mauldin, Wilma Lee Cooper, and Roni and Donna Stoneman; family bands including the Lewises, Whites, and McLains; and later pathbreaking performers such as the Buffalo Gals and other all-girl bands, Laurie Lewis, Lynn Morris, Missy Raines, and many others.

Thanks for your interest in Pretty Good for a Girl. We are happy for you to order it from Amazon or from your favorite bookseller. Amazon also offers it on Kindle. (We love Amazon, but can't compete with them price-wise!)

Fiddle Tunes For Banjo Made Easy

Photo for Ad 124555

Fiddle Tunes for Banjo Made Easy is a collection of must-know, easy-to-learn bluegrass instrumental standards. Ross records each song at three speeds and also includes a rhythm backup track. The slow speed is ideal for hearing the notes clearly and being able to play along in rhythm; the medium speed is a perfect goal for the beginning and intermediate student while the faster speed demonstrates what the song can sound like with a hard, driving push. The tablature is large for ease of reading and includes accent marks for melody notes where needed. Ross also provides tips and suggestions for each song to save you valuable practice time. These are tips on the more challenging spots that Ross has learned firsthand from teaching these privately for many years. In addition, there is a whole page of instruction on learning the chords to the song, how to play the song using only the chords, chord charts written out for each song and tips for memorizing and playing without tab. Fiddle Tunes for Banjo Made Easy is not just another tab book; it covers all the bases and gives you a realistic balanced approach for learning the songs the EASY way. Access to online audio.

Early Irish-American Banjo

Photo for Ad 124518

Here is the Lost Heritage of the Irish-American Banjo!

The Irish-style Tenor banjo has become immensely popular of late, yet the roots of Irish influence on American banjo music extends right back to the 1840s, when the legendary Joel Sweeney picked up a gourd banjo from Black American banjo players, and proceeded to perform 'jigs, reels and breakdowns'. Other Irish-Americans played a leading role in the development and popularity of the banjo in America, and Rob MacKillop has collected 27 of their finest pieces in this collection, the first of its kind.

Early Irish-American Banjo is a solo instrumental collection written in standard notation plus 3 lines of tablature for the 5-string banjo, the 4-string tenor banjo in standard tuning (CGDA), and for the Irish tenor banjo in octave-mandolin tuning (GDAE low-to-high). Lyrics are not included in this volume.

Can be played with either a flat pick or fingerstyle.

The online audio recording contains brilliant performances of all 27 pieces by Rob MacKillop, a leading performer of historical banjo music. Rob performs fingerstyle, with the flesh of his fingertips on gut strings, on a period-appropriate banjo, in the old American tuning. This audio is a treasure in itself.

Tunes included: St Patrick's Day; Rocky Road To Dublin; Savourneen Deelish; McCormick Party Reel, Sheridan's Hornpipe, Connaught Man's Rambles, and many others. Includes access to online audio.

Beyond The Waterfall Extraordinary Tunes For Clawhammer

Photo for Ad 124488

You've played "Over the Waterfall," marched along to "Soldier's Joy" and perhaps even found your fortune while trotting along on that "Old Spotted Pony." Now it's time to take the next step; beyond the waterfall to the land of lesser-played tunes.

Inside this volume are 40 challenging, unusual, interesting and dare I say- extraordinary tunes. As it includes standard notation, clawhammer banjo tablature, suggested chords and fiddle bow markings, this book is truly suitable for anyone. A number of old-time songs also include lyrics, so you can sing these great songs in the old-time style.

Most of the tunes include notes about their history and recording references are provided if you wish to hear how they were played and sung "way back when". I encourage you to take the time to do that. It may jump start your stalled old-time music collection or as some folks say, "start you a new one".

Bach's Cello Suites I-III Arranged For Tenor Banjo

Photo for Ad 124291

Bach's cello suites are among the most famous solo instrumental works of all time. The cello and the tenor banjo share the same tuning, and banjo players might be surprised at how well this great music fits on the fretboard. Rob MacKillop has provided tablature for the first three suites. Here is a chance for tenor banjo players to explore Bach on their instrument, which could be tuned to either regular, CGDA, or Irish tuning, GDAE. Includes online accompanying audio using three different tenor banjos: a regular tenor (Deering Eagle II), a gourd tenor (Jaybird Banjos), and a cello banjo (Gold Tone) which has the same low pitch as the cello.

A `suite' is a collection of dances of varying speeds and time signatures, conceived to be performed as a whole, and preceded by a prelude. Bach's Prelude to the 1st Suite is magnificent and justly famous. The Bourree from the 3rd Suite is also very popular. Enjoy playing Bach on the Tenor Banjo!

More Advanced Earl: The Tuner Songs

Photo for Ad 124099

More Advanced Earl - The Tuner Songs: So, we were talking about Earl Scruggs earlier. (Pun intended!) Some of the greatest tunes Earl gave us were the ones that feature the use of special D-tuners, sometimes called Scruggs tuners or Keith tuners. Your family and friends will be open-mouthed as they watch you de-tune your banjo and re-tune it right in the middle of the song! (Don’t tell them about the special tuners. Unless they paid for them!) We will show you step-by-step how to use these amazing tuning pegs.

If you don't have these special tuners (and you’re waiting for your birthday to roll around), we can still teach you how to play “Earl's Breakdown” and “Randy Lynn Rag” without the tuners. “Reuben,” which is in D tuning, does not require special tuners. We’ll show you how to retune the banjo for this one. Again, these classics are not just for Scruggs devotees. They are for anyone who is looking a greater adventure on the banjo. No Tab.

M & M Blues

Photo for Ad 123889

First released in 1993, M & M Blues features Murphy playing her hard-driving, Scruggs-style banjo. As one of Murphy's mail order students said after hearing her play some tunes at a workshop, "Everyone was curious to see if you could really play. You tell us to play clean and clear and get good tone, and everybody wanted to see if you really did that yourself." This CD proves that Murphy can really play! She is ably assisted, as always, by Red with his own powerful, Monroe-style mandolin picking. Three Murphy Method instructors also help out: David McLaughlin on rhythm guitar, Jim Wood on fiddle, and Marshall Wilborn on bass. M & M Blues features 14 selections--13 instrumentals and one singing song, the title cut. The two versions of Leatherjackets, written by Chris Henry, were not on the original cassette. If you like good, solid bluegrass, this CD delivers it in spades.

Learning To Hear Chord Changes

Learning to Hear Chord Changes: Feeling frustrated with your chording? Don’t despair! We can help! We can teach you to hear chord changes. By starting simply with familiar, two-chord songs you can develop your own ear and learn how to hear when the chords change. Later we move to familiar songs with three chords, and then on to songs with “different” chords like F and A. We sing each song and demonstrate the chords on banjo, mandolin, and fiddle. A must for anyone who thinks learning to hear chord changes is a complete mystery. For all instruments.

Photo for Ad 123689

More Advanced Earl - The Tuner Songs: So, we were talking about Earl Scruggs earlier. (Pun intended!) Some of the greatest tunes Earl gave us were the ones that feature the use of special D-tuners, sometimes called Scruggs tuners or Keith tuners. Your family and friends will be open-mouthed as they watch you de-tune your banjo and re-tune it right in the middle of the song! (Don’t tell them about the special tuners. Unless they paid for them!) We will show you step-by-step how to use these amazing tuning pegs.

If you don't have these special tuners (and you’re waiting for your birthday to roll around), we can still teach you how to play “Earl's Breakdown” and “Randy Lynn Rag” without the tuners. “Reuben,” which is in D tuning, does not require special tuners. We’ll show you how to retune the banjo for this one. Again, these classics are not just for Scruggs devotees. They are for anyone who is looking a greater adventure on the banjo. No Tab.

Earl's Breakdown, Flint Hill Special, Reuben, and Randy Lynn Rag. (2 hours).

The definitive text on playing harmonics (chimes) on the 5-string banjo in G tuning! In addition to traditional chiming methods, the author’s new T3N technique for creating banjo harmonics will add new dimensions to your playing. While particularly useful in the three-finger style, T3N can be used in other banjo styles and on other stringed instruments.
