5-string Learning the Banjo From Pete Seeger (93* d) RE: Learning the Banjo From Pete Seeger 08 Apr 00

Don't know any Seeger books on guitar, but there are a lot of good solo and accompany books on the market. I did my guitar by trying to follow a trio at scout camp in the early 60's who were doing Kingston Trio stuff, and then by learning classical guitar from the Carcassi method book. (Luckily, thanks to Mom insisting I take piano lessons through elementary school, I can read music.) Then Sing Out and any song books were source material. I just drug out my old "Bells of Rhumney and Other Songs" the other day - gonna try to learn some banjo to them.

Of course, this dang axe is a horse of an ENTIRELY different color! I guess I am trying to learn clawhammer first, so I can get into old time stuff (that's what my brother tells me).
