You've played "Over the Waterfall," marched along to "Soldier's Joy" and perhaps even found your fortune while trotting along on that "Old Spotted Pony." Now it's time to take the next step; beyond the waterfall to the land of lesser-played tunes.

Inside this volume are 40 challenging, unusual, interesting and dare I say- extraordinary tunes. As it includes standard notation, clawhammer banjo tablature, suggested chords and fiddle bow markings, this book is truly suitable for anyone. A number of old-time songs also include lyrics, so you can sing these great songs in the old-time style.

Most of the tunes include notes about their history and recording references are provided if you wish to hear how they were played and sung "way back when". I encourage you to take the time to do that. It may jump start your stalled old-time music collection or as some folks say, "start you a new one".
