Counterpoint - Clawhammer Banjo Duets Counterpoint is a collection of banjo duets, where Miles has taken traditional melodies and created a second banjo part in counterpoint harmony. Counterpoint harmony (vs parallel harmony) has a rhythm and melody of its own, distinct from the main melody. The result is an exquisite sound that enriches these ancient melodies and breathes a revitalized life into them. When Pete Seeger heard it he said, "this is one of the most beautiful recordings I have heard in all my 70 years....it's enough to make me want to learn the banjo all over again." 22117   $14.99

Kyle Creed - Clawhammer Banjo Master Book/CD Set Kyle Creed Clawhammer Banjo Master is a collection of clawhammer banjo tablature as played by Kyle Creed, with modern interpretations by Bob Carlin and Dan Levenson.

As such, each piece is presented in multiple arrangements, but on the page and on the accompanying audio CD. The recordings are for the most part played at a learning tempo and are close to the written notation but not exact in all cases. 22137BCD   $19.99
