Here is a fabulous collection of twenty-one "must know" bluegrass songs and instrumentals, created especially for learning players by some of the world's top bluegrass artists.
Each of the five book/CDs in this new series highlights one of the instruments of a standard bluegrass band. This one features the spectacular banjo playing of Tony Trischka. Tony plays two solos with the all star band backing him up - then drops out so you can take a solo, which is transcribed in the book for you. The band consists of top players Todd Phillips, Darol Anger, Matt Flinner and David Grier.
