Best Place to Start


I bought the same book many years ago when I started playing banjo. I'm a life long guitar player. When I bought this book back then it came with an audio "tape". When I saw that the book was updated and came with a "cd" I wanted to update my music library. That's how perfect this book is and how important it is to learn from Earl himself - I now have two! Thanks Samash and most importantly - Thank you Earl!
