I get a lot of compliments and results from my students with The Banjo Song Book. It's easy to read, the arrangements are solid, the melody really comes out (accents in the tab included) and they are excellent confidence builders. The DVD quality, easy to lick through menus and CD demonstrations at two tempos should be very helpful.

The Banjo Songbook is a very comprehensive wire bound book that includes text instruction for each song along with detailed tablature showing the picking and fretting hand used, as well as accent marks inserted for melody notes.
The arrangements of these songs are all rooted in the Earl Scruggs style and accent the melody. They are great for students at a beginning and intermediate level that want to expand their repertoire with some easy to play arrangements of popular five string banjo tunes. They aren't terribly complex but they sound great. There are also tips included for each song to help you learn them easier. Between, the CD and DVD of the songs performed at three speeds and the extra heads up tips and instruction, you will really have an advantage.
