We Banjo 3 Tune Book

The Book With 2 Front Covers!

“40 Solos for the Irish Tenor Banjo is an outstanding resource for banjo players wishing to better know and understand ornamentation and variation. With this tutor, WeBanjo3 has given us a resource young banjoists will undoubtedly turn to for years to come” Daniel Neely, Irish Echo

Ever Wondered How To Win Banjo Competitions?

Here’s How. Or How Not.

Martin Howley was an expert at winning the All-Ireland Banjo Competition and has 7 titles to prove it. Enda Scahill, on the other hand, was more likely to get disqualified for zany tune choice and even zanier variations! David Howley would go one better and sit in both camps simultaneously!

Our new book of banjo solos features 20 great Irish tunes tastefully arranged with ornamentation, variations and chords. The tunes are played twice through to demonstrate the development and interpretation of the tune.

Flip the book over and you have 20 brilliant “Irish-ish” tunes with great ornamentation, tricks, flicks, and madcap variations! Again played twice through.

Every tune in the book is fully transcribed capturing every note, triplet, treble, slide, hammer-on, pull-off, string bend and chord that is played on the accompanying CDs. We’ve even included TAB for our American friends!

We also kidnapped the extremely talented Fergal Scahill and got him to accompany all the tunes on the guitar. He really made us sound good!
