is it any good?
hey @frankb_be i’ve never had that paticular book but i have had two of her bookz and sorry to say wasn’t impressed by either. maybe this one would be better, who knows. I found them to be not very good arrangements and the teaching itself on the CDs was quite boring. Maybe someone has had the opposite opinion but that was my experience.
My experience is the same as @Shaky_loves_banjo
Given that the book appears to just be instruction and tab for specific songs, I’d pass. I think you’re pretty good at figuring things out by ear and improvisation anyway, so I’d throw your focus to that and learn the songs yourself- it’s more rewarding that way in my opinion.
Hi @frankb_be I don’t have that book but I do have Splitting the Licks, Up the Neck and Back Up Banjo I have to say I struggled with them. The CDs and the DVDs were not very helpful either. Maybe now that I have more knowledge and experience I might make better use of them. I bought them when I was a rank beginner on the advice of a teacher who didn’t have the patience to teach me and we parted company. I should add so did the 20 other students who signed up at the same time as me. But hey that’s another story.
If you want to learn Scruggs / JD Crowe Style go check out Sean Ray https://seanray.com/ He has the Kickoff and Session books and you can also buy TABs from him.
Thank you all
