Waltons tutorial banjo cd to accompany "50 solo’s for Irish Tenor Banjo".
This Cd was too big to post as one, so i post the first half (Gerry O Connor) and the second half (David McNevin) separately.
Well worth a listen..

Second half posted as, David McNevin- Rattlin’ banjos (part 2)

Book & CD (first edition was with a cassette)

"Gerry O’Connor and David McNevin are two of the finest tenor banjo players in Irish traditional music, and 50 Solos for Irish Tenor Banjo is the most comprehensive collection of Irish banjo tunes currently available. Gerry O’Connor’s 25 selections (arranged for C G D A tuning) reflect a style that has earned him a reputation as the most creative exponent of the instrument in Irish music. David McNevin, himself the recipient of major awards for his banjo playing, has selected 25 tunes and arranged them for G D A E or traditional tuning; the tablature for these solos may also be used for the mandolin."

Edited some links. The track order on the CD [ above ] is different from the cassette tape.
