If you've already tried a little Bluegrass Jamming, found your first few chords and tested a handful of tunes, Pete Wernick and an All-Star Bluegrass Band now give you the chance to progress to the next level.

With ample soloing opportunities and a variety of keys and tempos, this DVD tutorial/session will help you build your confidence and your repertoire, giving you the skills to join in and jam in any situation. 22 classic songs are performed by Wernick and the band, providing rhythm backup and two breaks per song for you to work on your soloing. Each song is played at a moderate tempo, so it's easy to keep up and play along.

Along with the songs themselves, you will learn:
  • The ins and outs of a jam session
  • Backup basics
  • Playing the melody
  • Using the capo
  • Jam etiquette
  • How to handle a musical disaster!

        Musicroom Reviews

        This seemed a good idea at the time and a chance to play along on guitar, but... the booklet only gives chords muddled up with the lyrics. That has always struck me as Micky Mouse and fine, I suppose if you know the tunes. But, a collection of lyrics with chords dotted around is useless if you do not know the tunes and are looking for a proper chord sequence per se. The chords do appear on screen for a bit of each tune via an inset of the guitar, however since I play lap style that is pretty meaningless as well! Could I suggest to Musicroom that you pass this onto HomeSpun as it might have more effect than just me doing it!
