Learn to play banjo and open up a brand new world of musical knowledge with this exciting method from Alfred Music. Beginners of all ages can start their journey to a lifetime of musical enjoyment. Alfred's Teach Yourself to Play Banjo teaches you to play 5-string banjo even if you've never held the instrument before. The book starts with the fundamentals such as the history of the banjo, its components, how to hold and tune it, caring for your very own instrument, and how to read standard musical notation. You will then move right along to playing different chords, strums, and songs, lesson by lesson, all while continuing to increase your knowledge of reading banjo music. You will learn important banjo techniques such as the hammer-on, pull-off, and more. There are also fingering charts and a dictionary of chords in G and C tunings.

This best-selling book is now available with DVD and CD. The DVD includes video lessons and performances for everything in the book, and also includes the TNT 2 audio player that lets you adjust the tempo and pitch, and isolate parts. The CD includes audio performances of every exercise and song. It plays in your CD player or you can download the tracks to your PC. Upon completion of the book, you will be able to play your favorite songs on the banjo, read music, play more than a dozen different strums and perform with a musical group.

Be your own teacher, and let Alfred Music be your resource every step of the way.

      Comments about Alfred's Teach Yourself to Play Banjo Book, CD & DVD:

      It said it was good for bluegrass style, but there were only a couple pages on it. I don't want to learn clawhammer style. This was a waste of money.
