Banjo for Dummies
Banjo for Dummies
by Bill Evans
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.34

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful
5.0 out of 5 stars Superb instruction backed up with downloadable audio and visuals., 8 July 2014
This review is from: Banjo for Dummies (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is not a well chosen title, it should be Five String Banjo for Dummies, the author, Bill Evans who is a very accomplished player, explains this at the beginning of the volume and in fact directs the reader to "look for another book for four string, tenor and plectrum banjos" which would be nicer on the front not on page 10!
Having said that this is as comprehensive an instructor as one could possibly find in a book and appendices of some 342 pages. It covers everything that the beginner could want to know, and much that a better player should know about playing this instrument, giving access to instructions on video and sound tracks that accompany chapters, these are downloadable and of high quality.
The first chapter familiarises the reader with the banjo, the different kinds, how to 'fret' and explores the parts and generally introduces the reader to the five string banjo.
Chapter two gives instruction on Tuning and the different methods available to tune correctly, then chapter three kicks off with the business of actually starting to play.
Different sections and chapters cover 'everything' clawhammer bluegrass, sliding, hammering and pulling. It describes the great Pete Seeger's method of playing and runs on through Scruggs style. This is so good a book even if you have no intention of playing its a damn good read all by itself!
Chapter 17 is headed Ten Great Players You Need To Hear and continues to give a quick appraisal of these ten players, so you can rest assured, you want a volume that covers all aspects -from the start- this is an absolute MUST HAVE, superb instruction backed up with downloadable audio and visuals.

5.0 out of 5 stars Its very nearlyTolkien!, 25 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Love it Love It Love It, wonderfully cast, beautifully acted the script is imaginative but don't expect it to stick tight to Tolkien's magic writing, I am a Tolkien fan but I do forgive the excursions from the book, this is a glorious movie... More, I want More!

Brilliant, can't praise this music high enough, I love everything Donald Fagen produces so this is perhaps not a critique you should read its very biased in its favours to Donald Fagen.

The Jack Harvey Novels: Witch Hunt / Bleeding Hearts / Blood Hunt
The Jack Harvey Novels: Witch Hunt / Bleeding Hearts / Blood Hunt
by Ian Rankin
Edition: Paperback
Price: £18.99

3.0 out of 5 stars I'm sticking with Rankin, 25 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Okay, I prefer Ian Rankin as Ian Rankin, Jack Harvey just doesn't write as well. Where Rankin flows and carries the reader along. I find myself stumbling with Jack Harvey and sometimes needing to return to an earlier page because my attention has wandered off which never seems to happen with Rankin. Having said that, the tales are entertaining but they are not Rankin at his usual quality.

4.0 out of 5 stars Opinion Pending, 25 Jun. 2014

So far, I like it. It seems a better read than the Long War which I found a bit of a let down from The Long Earth, I will return and edit this when I have finished the volume!
