A great resource. Thanks for all you do Tim!

Thanks. Have any insomniacs tried this? ( I don't have isomnia, but listening to this stuff knocks me out every time. ) Something about the similar tambre and key centers......along with engaging melodies is a perfect formula for rest. Try it.

Mix any playlist of these tunes.....any tutor at any time. You'll notice each album is a tiny bit different due to the weather. I kike that...sometimes boomy and ringy...sometimes tight and crisp.

I have tried it and it works great! Listening to banjo music relaxes me and takes my mind off of other pressing matters. I only wake up when some loud and raucous tune comes on!

I received my copy in the mail today.  It is totally awesome.  There is enough material here to keep me busy learning new songs for years!  Thanks for putting this together Tim.

I got all of Tim's up-to-date CDs at AEGB in 2014 and have since obtained the "Winners" book and CD and Early Banjo Tutor (Is this everything?)    I have put the lot on my iPod so it goes with me almost everywhere.  A truly amazing body of work - essential listening for students of the genre.  Many, many thanks Tim!

I see that I have all of them, plus Winners and Early Banjo Primer.  I do not have Buckley 1868 in TAB.  Shall I obtain this from you site?
