    If you are picking up the banjo for the first time this is the book to buy. Pete gives you a look at all the different styles of playing and good examples of each. With this book under your belt you will have a good idea of what style you...

    want to play and can progress from there. It's funny, it's interesting, it's informative, just an all round great effort. A "must have" for all banjo enthusiasts.
