The Music of Old Joe Sweeny: Father of the Five-String Banjo & American Popular Music

Joel Walker Sweeny is the father of the five-string banjo, and in effect, also the father of American popular music. Strangely, to date, no one has re-published his original sheet music from 1840 or issued his early repertoire in modern banjo tablature. This book seeks to remedy that omission. It also includes an Introduction, Forewords, Beginner, Advanced, and Alternate versions, and comes with a companion CD of the songs.
