A treasure trove of Anglo-Celtic music adapted to the 5-string banjo. Music of the British Isles for Banjo provides material for banjo players to expand beyond the confines of the key of G major û playing in different keys while retaining G major tuning. There is a section where each tune is arranged in more than one key û either in tow or three different keys.

It teaches the student not to rely on the 5th string while providing fresh insight into the uses of the 5th string capo. Also exposes the player to ancient modal scales as well as the more modern Major/Minor scales. All tunes are presented in the perpetual motion so they may be viewed as limbering-up exercises for the fingers. On the accompanying CD the tunes are played much slower than normal in order for the student to better grasp the material. In tablature only.
