What is the first thing most Banjo players want to do as soon as they have learned a few songs? They want to learn some fancy scruggs backup. Now, for the first time, these seemingly difficult fancy backup licks are explained note-by-note by Casey Henry, who has been studying Earl's playing for years.
Casey makes learning them easy, by starting with the simplest licks and building up to the more complex. And best of all, she shows you how to use them in real bluegrass songs.
Each section on this DVD includes three to four separate lessons that teach individual licks. Then we put the licks into backup patterns for the classic numbers Thinking Tonight of My Blue Eyes, Bury Me Beneath the Willow, Titanic and Will the Roses Bloom. Once learned, these licks can be used in a wide variety of other songs, including several that have identical chord progressions to the ones taught here.
