Save Password. If you are a serious BG banjo disciple, then owning a copy would be 'strongly advised'. It's the bible and foundation for learning accurate fundamentals for playing scruggs style and contains accurate tablature of his songs the way he played them directly from the man himself. Many teachers will recommend using it and will teach from it, if that's their method of teaching.

Some may not but there are alot of books and teaching methods that are accurately based on it. So it's not mandatory as long as you have one that IS. For the record Earl's book is the one I started with and was recommended by my teacher and I still have it and reference it from time to time. No, it is not mandatory. You can find the information you need in newer books and, no offense to Earl, but the newer books are easier to read and understand.

However, it is an excellent reference book to have and to keep. I started off with that book many, many years ago and still have it, dog-eared and falling apart and I wouldn't part with it for anything, mistakes and all, and there are a bunch of typos in the tablatures. I don't know whether it has any mistakes or typos in it or not. From what I understand for the second edition they corrected a load of typographic errors found in the first edition and added loads more!

No you don't have to have this book, but it's like if you start a blog ro subject on the BHO, you will get several different opinions, and that is what you get by having several different books, cds, dvds and etc. Does it make you a batter banjo player, no, but it does give you more information about played the banjo and isn't that what most are looking for? But in an effort to be as accurate as possibly, the editors of the tab in the new edition tried to indicate every nuance that can be detected in the recordings.

An experienced player can usually make sense out of those counterintuitive grace notes, phantom slides, and such, but they will only confuse beginner and intermediate players including quite a few of my students.

So the new edition is more accurate, but often less useful. Get it anyway, for the reasons posted above. BTW, Bill Keith transcribed the tab used in the original edition. His name does not appear at all in the second edition, and I want to make sure that people know that without his long and hard work, there would not have been a Scruggs book at all, at least not as we know it today.

It was one of my first books. Many years later as I look back, I think if I have some of the newer books and varied methods out there today rather than the Scruggs book my initial progress may have been a little more accelerated.

In my opinion all the complaints about the typos are misplaced, or at the very least over exaggerated. There are typos, but if one follows the method, by the time you start working through the transcriptions you should be able to spot them and figure out what the correction should be.

If, however, you bought the book and turned to the tab section and thought you could just dive in without a good grasp of the material, then you deserve to suffer with the typos. Not true. I have it, and the CD that came with it. I havn't really used it because i find it a bit advanced for a beginner. Still a great book to own though. I have the original addition, with the little record, and yes there are typos and errors in it, but the basic structure is there and if you play the tune you will see the mistakes and you know how to correct it.

I still believe it is a great addition to your collection. Yes, but I wonder why he was give so little props in this the 2nd book. There are several things in the book that make me wonder. To the original post. There is a ton of stuff in this book that I keep referring back to and Earl's demos on the cd are great.

IMO, the more you know, the more this book becomes valuable. I have both books and use it as a great reference on Scruggs licks. The Tabs have helped me in getting started a few years ago. I then bought the 2nd addition and am still playing. I beg to differ with the post above who states that it is not for beginners I refer to that 2nd addition and the cd quite a bit!

With all due respect, I really disagree with this statement. I think the book was written with beginners in mind. It's a good book to have I've made it through some, certainly not all the songs, but it's nice to essentially have the 3-finger bible at hand when you need it. I also enjoyed reading about the day he "discovered" 3-finger picking. Basic rolls, songs, licks, and back-up. Includes a CD- I highly recommend it. My opinion would be unless some one has financial hardship or some other personal reasons, it is a good idea to buy all banjo books BG, CH, You never know which one will click.

I think ANY book would be fine…as long as you have a competent instructor. A knowledgeable instructor can bridge gaps that MANY books have as far as typos and logic slips. Just my opinion.

In the absence of an instructor, I think most contemporary beginner books can work. Take a look at the BHO reviews on books and materials and try to make as informed decision as you can. Good luck in your banjo endeavors. For the OP: NO. It isn't mandatory. For me, that book solved a puzzle that I was not able to focus on for 40 years. I do not remember how many times I picked each page before I allowed myself to move on to the next page. I don't care. I am learning what I've had in the back of my mind for many decades.

There is little else of equal satisfaction. I sincerely wish you well. I think the best parts of the Scruggs book are the reading chapters. At least it is worth buying the book just for them. I have bought the Earl Scruggs book in when I was an absolute beginner and it has been hard for me to learn something from it, apart forward and backward rolls. Three years later I have bought "You can teach yourself banjo" by Janet Davis and finally I started to learn the bluegrass banjo. So in my very humble opinion and like I have red in several other posts about the Earl Scruggs book: it's a very good book, but it's not a beginner book.

I never bought my own copy,but did borrow one for a few days in the 70s. I hadn't heard very many recordings of Earl at the time and didn't get anywhere with the book. I've never studied Earl's playing in any kind of depth. I couldn't agree more. Many of the errors in the original edition are only in the tab.

When in doubt reference the recordings and trust your ears. So is the Scruggs book mandatory? When I first started learning 3 finger Bluegrass style, I bought Earl Scruggs book to examine and found most of it to be a little much for me. A year later of playing, studying, I reopened Earl Scruggs book to discover a much greater understanding, and truly glad I possess this book today! For me, Earl Scruggs book is mandatory, simply because it is Earls style of playing that I need for a solid foundation.

FWIW, the attached PDF is a list of the errors in the first edition of Earl's book and could help those who only have the first edition. Having worked as a proofreader and an editor, I'd like to point out how difficult it must be for a non-banjoist to proofread tab. Heck, even if you play banjo and know how to read tab, it's still hard.

I've heard Bill Keith say that he offered to do the proofreading for the original edition, but the publisher never got the galley proofs to him, with the results that we've been discussing. Back when Frets magazine was being published, in nearly every issue I found mistakes in either the tab or the notation--but usually not in both in the same place, as seanray observes here. I agree with Sherry texasbanjo. Since Earl first did the book in the 60's, many instructionals have been done both in video and book form.

So it isn't as much of an essential to learning as it once was. However, it is the book done by the MAN, and that alone says something. The newer "enhanced" version reportedly has a number of tablature corrections in it too. Jack Hatfield has a Scruggs Corner book that is also quite good if you just want tabs.

I bought the Scruggs book when I first started and I still refer to it often. I haven't bought a book in a long time and realise that there are probably some great books on the market that I haven't seen, but two books that made an impression on me were Pete Wernick's Bluegrass Banjo book and Janet Davis's Splitting The Licks.

Many fine banjo players believe it or not, learned without any boo, tab or notation; so probably not mandatory. I got most of my Earl tabs from those sources. I find the TAB in that book really hard to follow. Though, to be fair, I find TAB pretty impenetrable and only refer to it when I'm stuck trying to figure something out.

But that one's harder than most. On the other hand, the book was incredibly important to my development because my father wrote the foreword and he basically says girls can't pick banjo.
