From the mountains to the charts, the banjo is back!
Thanks to its prevalence in folk and bluegrass music, the banjo helps define the very essence of "old-time music." At least that was the case until the mid-2010's when a new generation of pop artists made the old sound new again and scored pop hits with banjo-driven music. Banjo For Dummies helps out those who want to achieve that old-time sound as well as those who want to create the next chart topper. Packed with musical examples, charts, and photos, this step-by-step guide features tips and techniques for playing tunes on the banjo: how to select the right instrument and accessories: how to develop correct hand position and posture; and how to tune, care for, and make simple repairs to the instrument.
