Mel Bay Publications

This book is an anthology of Jack Hatfield's most successful teaching arrangements, jam session favorites, show tunes and original compositions.
Although it is not a teaching method per se, there are many arranging concepts and general tips included in the performance notes. Sections One and Two are intended to be a supplement for beginner and intermediate students. Section Three is basically a lick and repertoire building resource for more advanced players.
Hallmarks of Jack's teaching style include melody-oriented arrangements, the use of well-known songs for the beginner, teaching tunes essential to the bluegrass banjo player's repertoire, the use of bold-faced melody notes, and an extremely graduated approach which builds on previously learned techniques and licks.
