Purchase direct from the author at BanjoTeacher.com
Easy to play five-string banjo arrangements of twenty-four Children's favorites by banjo master Ross Nickerson. Not only are these songs fun to play but from an instructional standpoint they are perfect for helping you develop the ability to bring out the melody in the bluegrass banjo style.
Accenting the melody within the steady rhythmic roll of banjo playing is one of the biggest challenges facing banjo students and these familiar melodies are ideal for your development of that skill. Each song is arranged and performed using proper three-finger bluegrass technique. The arrangements are carefully designed to bring out the melody, but easy enough for a beginner or intermediate player to learn quickly.
The tablature in the book is large and easy to read with accent marks for melody notes,as well as right and left-hand fingering indications. This book is not simply a tablature book! Children's Made Easy for Banjo also features instruction on learning the chords for each song, chord progression charts for each song, special learning tips for each arrangement, a full page of advice on memorizing the songs and more.
Also, in the instructional section of the book Ross includes a page of suggestions on the best use of practice time and how to develop the skills needed to succeed with each piece.
Children's Songs Made Easy for Banjo features a high quality studio recorded CD of all the songs played at three speeds and a bonus track of Ross performing improvised versions of several of the songs in the book.
