This covers everything so far
on January 7, 2013
I bought my wife a banjo. Then it dawned on me, she's never played a banjo before. She's not going to enjoy just a banjo. So I also got her some finger picks, an electronic tuner, and this book.
She found everything she has needed in this book so far. The banjo needed some assembly, some things tightened/adjusted, and a lot of tuning. All of that was clearly explained in this book.
She says there is also a section about choosing a banjo. I wished I'd thought about that before I bought the banjo but it turns out that the banjo I picked was a good one for her and the book confirmed that.
If you are starting in banjo, start with this book. Actually, get this book before you even buy the banjo.
