- DescriptionThis is a massive collection of transcriptions representing the history of three-finger style five-string banjo playing up to the style's culmination with Earl Scruggs coming on the scene. This is a one-of-a-kind resource containing 49 transcriptions beginning with some of the style's earliest forms up through those that approach the fully developed Scruggs style. These solos, written in easy-to-read tablature, are also a great source of beginner to intermediate level arrangements that players will want to learn.Players will gain a deeper understanding of the structure as well as the significance of the Scruggs Style of banjo playing. These te-for-te transcriptions serve as a companion to the CD recording of the same title featuring such players as Snuffy Jenkins, Larry Richardson, Joe Stuart, Smiley Hobbs, Junie Scruggs, Mike Seeger, Eric Weissburg, Pete Kuykendall, Veronica (Roni) Stoneman Cox, and more. These field recordings were made on location in the hills and hollers of the Appalachian region in the late 1950's by Mike Seeter.
