Many of the tunes included here are available on YouTube, or elsewhere on the Internet, performed by the old-time artists Seeger mentions in the book. Unfortunately there's not a compilation CD with the original artists, but I imagine you could make a fairly complete playlist on YouTube.
Everybody who wants to play the banjo should study this book: just don't expect to rely on that alone, unless you're truly self-disciplined and fanatically dedicated.
it remains one of the simplest, yet most complete, guides to anyone wanting to learn seeger style
there was also a longplay album that went along with the book - it's now available here as MP3s at this link - How to Play a 5-String Banjo (instruction)
