Banjo Backup for Fiddle Tunes: Playing backup to a fiddle is one of the "funnest" things a banjo player can do! No pressure-you just hang around in the background doing simple roll patterns.

But what rolls do you use? Casey and Murphy tell you (and show you) all about it in this brand new DVD. Did you know you could back up "Sally Goodwin" with just two licks? Sure you can! Of course, you can make it harder and they show you that, too.

With these newly acquired skills--plus a few other licks--you are ready to back up "Turkey in the Straw", "Old Joe Clark", and "Leather Britches".Fiddle champ Megan Lynch plays the fiddle parts and is now the Queen of Playing the Fiddle Slowly! She also joins Casey and Murphy for some up-tempo playing as they demonstrate the skills taught here on a variety of tunes including "Cherokee Shuffle" and "Sugar in the Gourd".

Bonus footage includes Murphy and the Fabulous Fletcher Bright ripping through some amazing banjo and fiddle tunes as only two seasoned performers (and close friends) can. As always, everything is explained note-by-note and played v-e-r-y s-l-o-w-l-y. No guesswork! No Tab.
