Rocket Science Banjo is yours - Free, - Gratis, no charge, pro bono, on the house, my compliments, no money down, no payments, and no shipping or handling charges. You don’t even leave any personal information to get Rocket Science Banjo. You just download it, and have fun.

Although RSB is free, it is still a fully copyrighted work under a creative commons license. Which means, you are free to use the text, and exercises to improve your playing. You can also play tunes from RSB in any venue – Every tune in the book is in public domain.

I do request that you do not republish the book, or any portions of the book, without express written permission from me – the author. Banjo teachers are free to use RSB materials for teaching, but I prefer that your students download the work directly from the RSB website. If you download it from here you are guaranteed a clean copy of the work in its most current state. Check back here occasionally for updates.

Remember that RSB itself is free, completely free, and always will be free. You are free to use Rocket Science Banjo, now and as long as this website exists.


You will find the link to the zip file in the "Downloads" area in the upper right-hand corner of this page. I have not made any changes to what OWC provided, and don't plan to.

Remember that all material found on this site is copyrighted by Tony. Please honor his request in the above paragraphs.

I have also added a link to my Prickly Pear Music site, because Tony allowed me to post a few tabs and some exercises for banjo players (and guitar players as well). They are also free for downloading; please follow Tony's copyright request with them as well.
