View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Here is the most comprehensive banjo book ever written. Tony Trischka and Pete Wernick spent four years researching, organizing and fine tuning this project with staggering results: over 400 pages of interviews, tunes, photos and analysis, covering every conceivable aspect of the three-finger style. Players at every level will benefit immeasurably from the information gathered here. Though not an instruction book, per se, these pages contain a wealth of information and music. This book focuses on eighteen banjoists who have made significant contributions to their field, including the legendary Earl Scruggs. Each chapter contains a short biography, a lengthy interview, illustrative photos (detailing hand position, pick placement and banjo of choice), and a selection of their best-known tunes in tablature (with accompanying analyses).
