Book/2-DVD set. 47 Old Time 5-string banjo tunings and picking styles. Rosenbaum is one of America's foremost performers and teachers of traditional five-string banjo playing. He has a long-time interest in the myriad old-time tunings that give breadth and richness to mountain and old-time banjo picking. Pete Seeger praised the inclusion of 23 tunings in Art's 1968 book "Old-Time Mountain Banjo." This set doubles (plus one!) that number of tunings. Art groups the tunings into "families" and shows how they can be used, with various picking styles, in playing banjo tunes and string band music and in song accompaniment. Experienced players will broaden their knowledge of unusual and interesting tunings and styles, and novice players can get started with "common" tunings for easy pieces like "Cripple Creek" and "Shout Lulu" - the first tunes many old-timers learned. 112 pp.
