Wade Ward Clawhammer Banjo Master

Photo for Ad 126858

Wade Ward Clawhammer Banjo Master is a collection of clawhammer banjo tablature as played by Wade Ward, with modern interpretations by Bob Carlin and Dan Levenson. This book is the second in a series of transcriptions of tunes from the old masters--in this case, Wade Ward--who gave definition to our style of old time clawhammer banjo playing. 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, but on the page and on the accompanying audio online. The recordings are for the most part played at a learning tempo and are close to the written notation but not exact in all cases. Includes access to online audio.

Scruggs-Style Fiddle Tunesscruggs-Style Fiddle Tunes - Some

Photo for Ad 126856

Scruggs-Style Fiddle Tunes - Some tunes lay out really easily on the banjo and some just don’t. These six popular fiddle and flatpicking tunes do NOT lay out particularly easily on the banjo. But over her years of teaching, Casey has developed these very playable, Scruggs-style arrangements, and her students have successfully learned them. If you jam with fiddlers or guitar and mandolin pickers who play these tunes you need this DVD!

Red-Haired Boy, Whiskey Before Breakfast, Cherokee Shuffle, Angelina Baker, Forked Deer, St. Anne’s Reel (Over 2 hours.)

DVD or Download

$29.95

These six songs are designed as stand-alone lessons--however, some are easier than others! Red-Haired Boy and Angelina Baker are very doable for the intermediate player. Whiskey Before Breakfast and Cherokee Shuffle are advanced-intermediate level, and Forked Deer and St. Anne’s Reel are solidly advanced.

Clawhammer Banjo Volume 1

Photo for Ad 126783

Clawhammer Banjo Volume 1: Sometimes playing the banjo bluegrass style just doesn’t do it for you. Or perhaps you just want to investigate this thing called “clawhammer.” (Also called “old-time” or “frailing” banjo.) Nowhere will you find a better guide and teacher than the multi-award-winning Lynn Morris. Lynn has flat-out taken the mystery out clawhammer playing! She has broken this pre-bluegrass style into small segments so that you can learn it easily. Using the frailing strum, Lynn takes you through 5 songs in note-by-note detail. Introduces double C tuning. No Tab.

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

Photo for Ad 126641

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!

...and there you have it! is a collection of Murphy's best Banjo Newsletter columns from 1983-1994.

The book has over 25 black and white photos, including a very pregnant Murphy posing belly-to-belly with one of her favorite banjo pickers, Jim Fee. The color photo on the cover was taken by the very talented photographer MaryE Yeomans and shows Murphy with two of her favorite things: her banjo and a bag of M and M's! If you have enjoyed Murphy's writing in Banjo Newsletter over the years, if you like her the work she does for Bluegrass Unlimited in the General Store column, or if you just like good writing with a down-home touch, you will enjoy this book.

Banjo Strings From JustStrings.com

Photo for Ad 126567

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 126234

Pretty Good For A Girl: Women In Bluegrass - 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.

Out of stock from us, but available from amazon: https://bit.ly/2yRlLNg

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.

Here is the blog that Murphy wrote about the book.

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!)

Clawhammer Banjo From Scratch

Photo for Ad 126207

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.

Harmonics For The 5-String Banjo

Photo for Ad 126074

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.

Half Price DVD Of The Month: Wildwood Flower

Photo for Ad 126038

Although our newest release teaches you how to improvise in C, this DVD teaches melody breaks in C position. This will expand your repertoire of C licks and give you more variety in your breaks. Do Lord, Worried Man, Wildwood Flower, and more! On sale this month for $14.98.

Wildwood Flower and Other Banjo Classics (formerly titled Playing in C Volume 1): Not all tunes are played in the Key of G. Not all singers sing in the Key of G. (Especially women and low-voiced men.) Broaden your horizons by venturing into the key of C -- without using a capo. We ease you in gently by using simple songs like “Boil Them Cabbage Down” to make the transition as easy as possible. Yes, we do use many familiar licks, but they are often used in different ways. Lots of new licks, too! Now you will be able to play along when your friends pick the “Wildwood Flower,” which is traditionally done in C. After you learn to play in C, you can use your capo to play in D, E, and F. An invaluable skill in a jam session. Singers will love you! No Tab!

Boil Them Cabbage Down (in C position), Lonesome Road Blues (in C position), Do Lord, Worried Man, Wildwood Flower, Uncloudy Day, Arkansas Traveler, Leaning On The Everlasting Arms, and a little theory. (2 hours)

Basic Music Theory For Banjo Players Book Online Audio/Video

Photo for Ad 125953

This book is a "hands-on" approach to music theory with lots of playing examples for the banjo. Music theory does not have to be mysterious or difficult. In fact, taken a little bit at a time, it’s easy and fun! Each of the approximately 50 lessons in this book has a limited scope, but by the time you complete them, you will have a thorough understanding of the basics of music theory as applied to the banjo.

While a single book can't cover everything in so vast a subject, the author has tried to choose topics that will address the needs of most beginning banjo players. These include: scale theory, reading tablature and standard notation, key signatures, accidentals, transposition, time signatures and note values, intervals and chord construction, the three kinds of minor scales, pentatonic scales, and more. In addition, each chapter features playing examples and review questions to both test and clarify understanding of the materials presented.

Rather than proceeding from chapter to chapter, as each individual banjo player is likely at a different point in their musical journey, the reader is encouraged to “jump around and spend more time in those areas that interest you most.” The important thing about the journey is to begin.

Includes access to online audio and video.

Great Banjo Tunes

Photo for Ad 125654

Great Banjo Tunes (formerly titled Advanced Banjo): We’ve spoken of banjo greats Earl Scruggs and Ralph Stanley (if you are reading these blurbs in order), but we have yet to mention the magnificent work of Don Reno. Don played in a jazzy, often single-string, style that is hard to duplicate. We do the best we can with his versions of “Limehouse Blues” and “Dixie Breakdown,” two light-hearted, fun-filled pieces that include some tricky left-hand fingering. (Be prepared to stretch!) (Note: The DVD opens with an awesome twin-banjo version of “Dixie Breakdown” by Murphy and Casey. We say with all modesty.)

Then, from the Father of Bluegrass himself, Bill Monroe, come mandolin tunes “Goldrush” and “Shenandoah Breakdown.” Both include some not-too-difficult melodic licks, as does the traditional fiddle tune “Bill Cheatum.” Last, and perhaps hardest, “Kansas City Railroad Blues” (in the key of C), features Casey teaching a tune for the first time at age 17.

You’ll have your work cut out for you with these tunes, but when the work’s all done, you’ll have made a quantum leap in your playing. No Tab.

Goldrush, Bill Cheatum, Shenandoah Breakdown, Limehouse Blues, Dixie Breakdown, and Kansas City Railroad Blues (2 hours, 15 minutes)

Jam Session Standards: Not a beginner but want to check out learning by ear? Start here! All songs explained note-by-note. Also great for Murphy Method students who have completed the Big Three (Beginning Banjo Vol. 1 and 2 and Misfits) and are ready to move on to something slightly harder. And finally, a way to answer all those requests for “Rocky Top”! These songs are considered bluegrass standards almost everywhere. No Tab.
