Wade Ward Clawhammer Banjo Master

A collaborative effort with Bob Carlin. 28 Wade Ward tunes, each with two tabs—Bob’s transcribed version of Wade’s playing, and Dan’s more “modern” interpreted version. Plus a CD so you can hear them.

This book is the second in a series of transcriptions of tunes from the old masters—in this case, Wade Ward—who gave definition to our style of old time clawhammer banjo playing. The repertoire, presented in tablature, is intended to be a starting point for your journey through the old time music world. The recordings are played at a learning tempo and are close to the written notation but not exact in all cases.
