50 Tunes Volume 1 for Banjo is one book in a 5-book series. The 50 Tunes series is a collection of Bluegrass, Old Time and Celtic tunes for ensembles, families and individuals. This book contains the same 50 tunes as those found in the other 4 books of the series, but carefully designed for the banjo.
The parts in this book range from beginner to advanced. Though many parts are arranged in standard Scruggs style, some are arranged in frailing or clawhammer style, and many are arranged in melodic style. Where Scruggs style is considered, less melody/more finger roll pattern, melodic style, as the name implies, is more melody/less finger roll pattern. Clawhammer style uses no finger roll patterns; instead, it is made up of a melody within a strumming rhythm pattern. Clawhammer is considered a self-accompaniment style. Companion CDs included. Tunes recorded by full band, not all instruments featured in every song.
