Here's a wonderful new collection of Finnish folk tunes arranged for 5-string banjo! There are 26 traditional tunes included from all over Finland. I've presented these in tablature for G, G minor, and C tunings. This is one book in a series along with fingerstyle guitar, piano, ukulele, baritone ukulele, and treble clef lead sheets that all make up the Ancestral Melodies collection. There's a companion album you can download for free as well!
