incredible music. the banjo is a versatile and charming instrument. The new songs are just that - fresh and engaging. Try it - a whole different genre of sound.

Basic tablature for the intermediate player Feb. 13 2010
By J. House - Published on Amazon.com
However, more time could have been spent TOTALLY tabbing out the tunes. I was somewhat dissappointed, when on attempting to play the LEAD song, 'Daddy played the banjo'. It was more 'backup', having left out the entire Main break. So, folks, don't expect a detail tab layout. just basic stuff. Tony Trischka is a great talent, he could have done better on the tabs. Buy the CD because its one of the best bluegrass and clawhammer assemblage for 2009.

Great transcription of a wonderful album Dec 7 2010
By JVincent - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Steve Martin is a Banjo genius, and this book is very effective at reminding me that I am not! Seriously, this book is wonderfully transcribed, its just a matter of playing the material in a way that does this wonderful album any justice. If you're at all concerned about transcription quality, rest assured: Tony Trischka (a veritable Banjo god) worked with Steve Martin to ensure accuracy. This is stated specifically within the book. If you love the Crow and want to (attempt to) play some of the songs, then this is the book for you.

The Crow is good for teachers Oct. 31 2010
By Guy Hook - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I teach 5-string banjo, both bluegrass and old-timey. This book of tablature is just what I needed for several of my students who asked to work on songs from The Crow. The tablatures are concise and easy to read and the book saves me the time it would take me to tab it myself. Good job!

One of the best tab books out there, for an amazing album Jan. 6 2011
By Will Klinger - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I fell in love with The Crow when I first heard it, and was blown away by Steve Martin's talent on the banjo. It's such a modern-sounding and accessible album and easily the most enjoyable I've heard in a while. As soon as I heard "Saga of the Old West" I knew I had to learn how to play it. After two days with this book I'm well on my way to mastering the first section of that song, and I've only been playing the banjo since August (although I do play the guitar). The tabs are clearly laid out with easy-to-read indications of which fingers to pick with, exactly where the hammers and pull-offs are, and which section of the song you are playing. There are many different styles included in the book as well. It's even better that Steve was involved with the book and includes his personal comments and tips for the tabs (e.g. "...which is how how I play it...").

Overall, this book is very easy to understand and a great way to further appreciate Steve's more contemporary musicianship!

Worth the money! Jan. 7 2010

I ordered this book for my son and I since we both play and we were very pleased with the ease of how the songs are laid out. If you love this album and want to learn how to play the songs look no further! Quick ship too!
