Book HM 4018 (in music and TAB, and chord windows, for G tuning and C tuning):

"With Celtic Credentials, Sully has resolved the history of the banjo in one breath-taking album.

The idea is quite simple: take the Irish "traditional" melody, then add the old jazzers' approach to chord accompaniment, what you get is Donal Lunny meets Barney McKenna - with a bit of Swing and lots of humour. Sully is no slouch in the creative department either, 10 of the 14 tracks are original compositions...his playing is full of drive, fast without being hurried, and his use of chord progressions is often sensational. The book is aimed at the intermediate to advanced player...the notation is easy to read...there are plenty of interesting chords... and many of the tunes use the full length of the neck. If you can play these tunes as written you will look really flash." Irish Music magazine, Dublin
