• Beyond the Waterfall: Extraordinary Tunes for Fiddle and Clawhammer Banjo, by Dan Levenson

    Pacific, Mo. — Mel Bay Publications is set to release Beyond the Waterfall: Extraordinary Tunes for Fiddle and Clawhammer Banjo, a new book by Dan Levenson.

    The focus of the book is on lesser played tunes. It contains a collection of 40 challenging, unusual, and interesting tunes written out both in standard notation and clawhammer banjo tablature. Also included are suggested chords and fiddle bowing.

    The book features a number of old-time songs, including all of their lyrics. Most of the tunes also include a selection of historic notes and recorded references for the reader to look up, so you can hear how it was played "way back when."

    The book is available for pre-order now at the link below, and is expected to ship June 1.
