5.0 von 5 Sternen Great book - but one caveat 14. August 2014
Von Mike H - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This book is very clear in its presentation of the many steps involved in learning the 5-string banjo. It leads you through with great attention to detail and a lot of humor. I received my new banjo recently (also through Amazon) and am hard at work learning the basics. It's fun to peek ahead at what's coming next--at the same time, it's sobering to realize how much there is to learn before I'll sound like a real bluegrass banjo player (if ever!).

There is one problem with the electronic version of this book, namely, that the tablature listings of the various banjo "rolls" and songs are really too small to read conveniently. I have used a magnifying glass to puzzle them out on my Kindle, but that's an inconvenience, to say the least. It doesn't help to increase the size of the text because the tablature is a diagram separate from the text and remains the same size no matter what the text size is. I have encountered a similar problem previously with charts and tables in the electronic versions of various technical books. So I don't blame this annoyance on the Banjo for Dummies book but rather on Amazon's electronic publishing format. I am planning to buy a paper version of the book and would recommend a paper copy instead of the electronic copy for other potential buyers.

The on-line video assistance is another feature of this book that makes it stand out. It's almost like having a private teacher.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wonderful Introduction for Dummies! 11. November 2014
Von Skylar Cook - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I was recently bitten by the banjo bug, and got this book to guide my new obsession. Bill Evans is a bit wordy, but definitely goes out of his way to remove all confusion over each topic as it's introduced: in comparison, a few other books I purchased seem downright curt. It's written in a very relaxed tone, and emphasizes the "whatever works for you" approach to banjo (the "informal" nature of the instrument was what initially drew me in -- that good ol' country twang!).

I really liked how he alternately gives attention to both the clawhammer / frailing and bluegrass styles, as many books focus on one or the other. Initially I thought I would just skip over the bluegrass sections, but soon found myself enjoying them just as much as the old-timey frailing.

The freely-available online videos and sound clips ( are also a huge bonus -- it's one thing to read about proper hand placement, but quite another to be able to watch the setup on video.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An excellent primer for the novice 27. Dezember 2014
Von captiii - Veröffentlicht auf
I received a banjo for Christmas. With it I received this book. I have never played the banjo before but have always wanted to learn. I do have a musical background so do I read music and I do play guitar so I am somewhat familiar with stringed instruments. This book really does lay down the basics and provides the opportunity to grow and become a real banjo player. Even if I had no musical background this book would have been an excellent source of knowledge that would enable learning basic skills and developing a banjo playing technique. If you are new to the banjo, regardless of your previous musical experience this book will help you to become the banjo player you desire to be. Highly recommended.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great comprehensive treatise 25. März 2014
Von Michael Gross - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This book covers every topic I could imagine and many that never would have occurred to me. It is clear, informative, and fascinating throughout. I've returned to it nearly every day for more than a month. Between the book and the supporting materials, I'm not sure I'll ever exhaust this resource. Banjo for Dummies is a masterpiece.
