The finest tenor banjo method available, this text represents Mel Bay's own approach to fundamental musicianship on this versatile instrument. This book is the standard by which others are judged. Easy-to-understand and thorough in its approach, this method addresses both melody playing and chord strumming. Through numerous studies, folk songs and several duets, students are systematically introduced to the various notes and positions on the tenor banjo fretboard. Photos aid in learning proper hand and sitting positions. Once in two volumes, this method is now presented it its entirety in this single comprehensive edition, written in standard notation only.

As the tuning of the mandola is identical to that of the tenor banjo (CGDA), this method can serve as a note-reading approach for learning the mandola as well. Tenor banjo chord references can also serve for the mandola. As with the guitar, however, these instruments actually sound an octave lower than written in treble clef.
