Learn Banjo Songs with DVD CD and Tab

The Banjo Song Book By Ross Nickerson

Newly updated with three new songs, I revised my beginning book by adding three songs that were previously in the Banjo Song Book. I added three new ones to replace them, Bill Cheatum, Wreck of the Old 97 and Two Dollar Bill.

12 popular five-string banjo tunes in tablature with CD, Video or DVD to learn from.

Learn: Dueling Banjos, Wreck of the Old 97, Bill Cheatum, Reuben’s Train, Ballad of Jed Clampett, Foggy Mountain Breakdown, Old Joe Clark, Two Dollar Bill, She’ll Be Coming Around The Mountain, Will The Circle Be Unbroken, Red River Valley and bonus song; America The Beautiful.

All the songs include easy to read tablature with accents for the melody notes and a CD recording of each song at a slow and fast tempo.

Available in DVD and Video!
DVD available for The Banjo Song Book.
Complete with quick cue menus!! Much easier than video.

Books are spiral bound.

Hello Ross,
I thoroughly enjoyed your ‘Banjo Songs’ instruction book and completed it over the weekend. Its overall simplicity allows me to play many of the tunes including ‘Foggy M.B.’ at your CD performance tempo. With that under my belt I can now go back and add in some complications (3-2 pull offs after the 2-3 hammer-ons etc.) that would have otherwise stagnated my pace and kept me from focusing on tempo. While most of the ‘Songbook’ tunes are freely accessible on the net in tabledit form, they lack the necessary straightforwardness needed to leap hurdles facing an intermediate player, namely rhythm and tempo with accuracy. Your book accomplished that for me without frustration and improved my confidence. It was also motivating to watch the performance downloads at your website …Douglas Fish

Cobalt Coated Picks!

Purchase these picks with the cobalt coating! You won’t be sorry. I’m extremely pleased with this new innovation…Ross N

Here’s the hype, but they don’t need it. I know you’ll be happy with them.

A finish that makes other picks obsolete!
Nasa has been using it for years in high-tech machinery, where expense was no object.
Used on metals to reduce friction and wear longer. End Result Picks do not drag or squeak on the strings!
Less drag means faster playing & cleaner sounding!

Virtually wear resistant and they really do make a difference.

Best Banjo Capos
This is the type of capo I use because you can adjust the pressure on the strings the easiest.


Where Comfort begins and innovation never ends.

Tailored, internal control-stretch design
Easy to attach
Very strong and durable
Fully adjustable:

These straps are the best! They are really comfortable and make the banjo feel lighter and we all know how important that is. They feature a very comfortable shoulder pad, heavy duty nylon, and best of all, detachable clips. No more cramming the strap into the case. Just take it off. I highly recommend these straps and I back them up with a money back satisfaction guarantee. List price 32.95 Special sale price at Banjo 29.95

(approx. 48″–58″)
The unique internal control-stretch system used in these straps offers weight reduction comfort unmatched by any other strap. It effectively disperses the weight while absorbing the shock of your movements. The SUPER BANJO STRAP™ uses strong side release buckles which join secure loop connectors to the main body of the strap. Merely thread the loops through the brackets, pass the side release buckles through the opening and reattach to the main strap. This creates a secure hold which is a snap to attach!
