This collection of 47 favorite melodies includes reels, jigs, waltzes, fiddle tunes, and a few William Bay originals, all written as melodic lines in tablature for the 5-string banjo in G tuning (gDGBD). Suggested chords are provided for parking lot or after-hours bluegrass jammers, as well as those who want to create their own melody/chord arrangements.

With many up-tempo tunes borrowed from fiddle literature, this outstanding collection is sure to delight audiences and fellow jammers as well as the solo intermediate banjo player. Includes access to the author’s exceptional online audio recording of each piece.
