Here is the last of the new banjo chord charts, this rounds out a collection of five tuning charts for the banjo. D, G, A, C-Standard, and Double C. These will be a great addition to the revised edition of Essential Chords coming out soon. Every chart in the book will now also have a matching Key chart, highlighting the I, IV, V and V7 chords. Along with an expanded page size and some other tweaks it should make for a great update. Here is the Double C banjo chart

Below is another chord chart from the upcoming Essential Chords for Guitar, Mandolin, Ukulele and Banjo. This is a 5 string Banjo chord chart in C Tuning. This summer I learned basic banjo with Riley Baugus at the Summer Acoustic Music Week camp run by WUMB in Boston. The camp is held twice each summer on Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire, great time. Riley was excellent, I also took his Round Peak Banjo class which was really interesting on the music of the Round Peak area of North Carolina. Anyways here is the second of 3 new charts.

Oh, it has been a while, we have been very busy and haven't been able to do much blogging, but we have some great news. I have been hard at work on a new revised version of Essential Chords book. I have increased the size a little, up to 8.5 x 11, trimmed up the pages and added a bunch of new banjo chord charts. I went to guitar camp this summer and took a class in banjo and learned about some chords I should add. I still have work to do on the book but this will give you a sample of the A tuning chords for 5 string banjo. The book is coming, getting closer every day, we are also going to have special offer when the book goes on sale. I will let you know as we get closer.
