Leon Hunt – The Banjo Columns
A brand new collection of banjo columns first published in Acoustic Magazine
Leon’s grown-up musical philosophy will guide you into what it means to be a mature musician. He’ll show you how to contribute to a band sound rather than detract from it. He’ll explain in short order how bends work, or why Ralph Stanley sounds different, or modal thinking.
This book is the result of all Leon Hunt’s listening, learning, experimenting, and hard work – and we gain the benefit. Index
