Aaron O'Rourke - The Banjammer Book

Regular price $19.00

With this book, you'll develop techniques that will help you with all of the banjo-dulcimer hybrid instruments. The Clemmer Banjammer specifically, but also the "banjo dulcimer", the Folkcraft LAP-JO®, and the BanjMo. A "regular" dulcimer technique works fine for these instruments, but because of their increased volume (especially the LAP-JO), a more "picking" and less "strumming" technique is generally more appropriate. Only Aaron O'Rourke can take his renowned flatpicking technique, and simplify it for "regular" players - we're happy to carry his book that does just that!

This book, when first published, came with an audio CD. Nowadays, the audio tracks are included as part of your download.

The Banjammer Book by Aaron O'Rourke

Don't sell your banjammer yet until you read this book! I found this book to be excellent. The information was really helpful and even told with a sense of humor! The tab and music have been written large enough for me to see compared to other books that I have. All in all I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to sound like a banjo.

Helpful Banjammer book

I am really enjoying adding some specific banjo type techniques to my new LapJo. Aarons book has been and will be very helpful. I knew it would be fun to use when I read the introduction and found myself laughing at his fun comments. I was so happy to find this book!!

Up to speed

Excellent book and audio examples for the Banjammer. Will give us all out here something to shoot for. One thing though, the Audio examples badly need two versions of each song: Slow like the samples and also an up to speed version.

Really good book . Aaron takes you thru step by step to learn to begin playing the Banjammer.
