Old-Time Festival Tunes For Clawhammer Banjo

Photo for Ad 137062

This book and extensive online audio recording is intended to be a tune repertoire book. It includes over 100 Old-Time festival favorites. Some are cliche, others unusual, some easy, some difficult. The book contains 2 lines of tablature (one basic and one advanced) as well as standard notation and suggested chords. The basic version should be playable by those with general clawhammer skills. The advanced version will require more time and finesse as it is more ornamental (often more than just melodic) and may include less than intuitive ways of playing some passages. Includes access to online banjo and fiddle audio.

Early American Classics For Banjo

Photo for Ad 136386

Here is the Forgotten Heritage: Great Banjo Music! Discover the birth of the American fingerstyle banjo in this collection of 28 of the finest tunes culled from banjo publications between 1860 and 1887. Learn amazing banjo music by some of the early leading players, James Buckley, Albert Baur, and the great Frank B. Converse, the greatest virtuoso of his day. From folk-style dances to parlor dances such as the Polka, Mazurka and Schottische, to advanced Romantic-period classical-style solos. Can be played on modern banjos or period-style instruments. The audio recording by Rob MacKillop features a gut-strung banjo, and is played with the flesh of the fingertips, in the old American tuning. For modern instrument players, Rob has provided TAB and a Standard Notation stave at modern banjo pitch. Clawhammer players will find many of the pieces in the book suitable for their technique, and bluegrass/fingerstyle players will be able to play all the pieces. Rob MacKillop provides a fascinating introductory essay, placing the music in its historical context, while his audio of performances can be viewed as a stand-alone recording by a leading player in the revival of this great American banjo heritage. Includes access to online audio.

Harmonics For The 5-String Banjo

Photo for Ad 136220

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.

Most banjo players are familiar with playing open-string harmonics on the 5-string banjo over the 12th, 7th and 5th frets, or perhaps the 4th and 9th frets, so that in typical G-tuning, the open G-chord, D-chord, octave G-chord, and B-chord notes are chimed. With the T3N technique presented in this book, entire scales can be chimed, with other harmonic effects including choking and sliding possibilities!

The first part of this book provides a review of traditional banjo harmonic chiming techniques, while the second part explores the exciting new T3Napproach. Written in tablature only, for 5-string banjo in GDGBD tuning.

Banjo Method (Book + Online Audio)

Photo for Ad 135654

This book, written for those with no prior musical experience, is the definitive text for learning C-tuning concert, or classic-style 5-string banjo. Written by the late Frank Bradbury, Banjo Method provides a thorough grounding in music theory and note reading, along with a complete presentation of Mr. Bradbury's unique 5-string concert banjo technique and outstanding solo and duet arrangements by various artists. The technique described here is radically different from that found in other books about the 5-string banjo, and no tablature is used. No plastic or metal picks are used on the right-hand fingers, nor are the fingernails used, but rather the bare fingertips. The hand positions recommended by Mr. Bradbury are not unlike those of a classical guitarist. All in all, this is an uncommon, but valid approach to solo banjo technique. Includes access to online audio of select pieces and exercises featuring Rob MacKillop.

Banjo Strings From JustStrings.com

Photo for Ad 135447

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.

Clawhammer Banjo From Scratch

Photo for Ad 134952

An instructional video that starts from the beginning! Clawhammer From Scratch begins as though you really have NO knowledge of how to play the five string banjo clawhammer style. Beginning at the beginning, Dan presents a brief history of the 5-string banjo then goes over the parts of the banjo, holding the banjo, right and left hand styles and his basic clawhammer strum. Even the strum is broken down into the steps of the finger and thumb. Based on Dan's innovative Meet the Banjo(TM) program where Dan brings 15 banjos and teaches players who may have never held a banjo, this video assumes no prior experience. Using one tune, Spotted Pony, you are guided through the chords, the scale and then the individual notes of the tune. This video ends with a few tips and frequently asked questions and even a chance for YOU to play with the fiddle and guitar just like in a private jam session. If you have been looking for that one instructional recording to get you started, this is the one for you. If you already have many books or videos but still can't seem to get the basics, this is the one for you, too! A 2-page pamphlet is included.

Picking up where Volume 1 left off, in Volume 2 you will learn to capo up to D tuning, review the basics of the Double Thumb Pony, then head off into the banjo world by learning to drop thumb, hammer-on, pull-off, and slide your way into the Full Blown Pony. Just as in Volume 1, you are guided through the chords, the scale, and then the individual notes of the tune as well as each of the techniques that make Old Time Southern Appalachian clawhammer banjo music as exciting as you have heard. Each technique is taught, then applied to the tune and repeated in easily learnable segments. This video even gives you a chance to play banjo with the fiddle and guitar just like in a real jam session. Booklet included.

Banjo Method (Book + Online Audio)

Photo for Ad 134820

This book, written for those with no prior musical experience, is the definitive text for learning C-tuning concert, or classic-style 5-string banjo. Written by the late Frank Bradbury, Banjo Method provides a thorough grounding in music theory and note reading, along with a complete presentation of Mr. Bradbury's unique 5-string concert banjo technique and outstanding solo and duet arrangements by various artists. The technique described here is radically different from that found in other books about the 5-string banjo, and no tablature is used. No plastic or metal picks are used on the right-hand fingers, nor are the fingernails used, but rather the bare fingertips. The hand positions recommended by Mr. Bradbury are not unlike those of a classical guitarist. All in all, this is an uncommon, but valid approach to solo banjo technique. Includes access to online audio of select pieces and exercises featuring Rob MacKillop.

Kyle Creed Clawhammer Banjo Master is a collection of clawhammer banjo tablature as played by Kyle Creed, with modern interpretations by Bob Carlin and Dan Levenson.

The repertoire, presented in tablature, is intended to be a starting point for your journey through the old time music world. As such, each piece is presented in multiple arrangements, both on the page and through the online audio. Includes access to online audio recordings that are for the most part played at a learning tempo and are close to the written notation but not exact in all cases.

Advanced Earl

Photo for Ad 134776

Advanced Earl: And when we say “Earl” of course we’re talking about Earl Scruggs, THE MASTER of the five-string banjo. He’s the one who gave us all the great licks you’ve been learning and many of the tunes. Every one from Bela Fleck to Cia Cherryholmes has at one time studied Earl.

The five selections presented here are chock full of new advanced-level licks. “Sally Goodwin” and “Foggy Mountain Special” in particular form the bedrock for much up-the-neck playing and improvising. “Sally Goodwin” will make your fiddling friends happy, while “Foggy Mountain Special” is a boogie-woggie tour de force.

These classic bluegrass tunes are not only for devoted Scruggs-style students. They are for anyone who wants to play at the higher-level jam sessions. When you trot out “Groundspeed” or “Pike County Breakdown,” other pickers will know there’s a serious banjo player in town. No Tab.

Sally Goodwin (two breaks), Groundspeed, Pike County Breakdown, Foggy Mountain Special. (2 hours)

Clawhammer Banjo Volume 1

Early American Banjo

Photo for Ad 134700

Early American Banjo by Tim Twiss provides complete banjo tablature transcriptions of the instrumental solos that first appeared in standard notation in Buckley’s Banjo Guide of 1868. This modern tablature edition of over 100 mid-19th century jigs, waltzes, polkas, hornpipes and reels provides insight to the transition between the African down-stroke technique, which preceded claw-hammer style and the newer, more refined plucking technique.

James Buckley (1803 - 1872), sometimes referred to as the “Father of the Classical Banjo,” was one of the most prolific transcribers of early banjo music. His compositions and arrangements were performed on the minstrel stage, and his scholarly discipline produced a lasting record of banjo music of his era. This repertoire collection includes easy tunes as well as more complex pieces suited for the concert stage. The player will delight in discovering how fresh and unusual some of this music sounds, even today--all in modern banjo tab.

While best experienced on a period reproduction, gut-string fretless banjo in a lower tuning, any 5-string banjo in C tuning (gCGBD) may be used to interpret this collection. Includes access to online audio.
