Alan Munde Banjo Tunes Arranged for Guitar by Tim May
Alan Munde is a legend in the bluegrass banjo world and his original tunes have been among the favorite tunes played by banjo players for decades. Unfortunately, until now, when a banjo player brings out one of these great tunes at a jam session, the guitar player may either not be as familiar with the tune, or not know how to play it on his instrument. Tim May has solved that problem.
In this book you will find 10 classic Alan Munde instrumental banjo tunes arranged for guitar. Each tune includes two arrangements, the melody as it was written (and approved) by Alan, and then a variation. The variation is typically a simpler arrangement of the complex melody so that the material in this book can be accessible to beginner, intermediate, and advanced guitar players.
If you have a banjo player in your band, or at your local jam session, who loves to play classic Alan Munde tunes like “Molly Bloom,” “Deputy Dalton,” or “Peaches and Cream,” then this book is definitely for you. But, even if you don’t pick with banjo players, you will find the tuneful melodies of Alan Munde original tunes interesting and fun to play on your guitar.
