The Bluegrass Bible
What a comprehensive presentation and personalization of the five string banjo. Technique is straight forward and embellished by practical tips. The storied career of Earl Scruggs is warm and presented in a down home readable style. The least useful part of the book was How To Build A Banjo which could have been offered as a separate booklet.
