The first important goal for beginning banjo players is to learn to play with other musicians and singers in a bluegrass jam session. On this two-hour DVD, one of the world's most experienced banjo teachers provides all the tools you need to give rhythmic support, play fill-ins and help the music sparkle.
Pete 'Dr. Banjo' Wernick developed this lesson especially for new pickers. Using actual footage of a bluegrass jam session, Pete shows in slow and clear detail the techniques you'll need to fit into a real jamming situation. You'll move from the simplest strum for the total beginner to chord vamping, rolls, up-the-neck positions and many of the fill-in licks that banjo players use to spark the bluegrass sound.
As you learn the techniques, you can put them into practice by playing along with Pete's companion bluegrass jamming DVDs. Dr. Banjo's prescription for solid banjo accompaniment is filled with sage advice and powerful pointers on how to become a great backup player.
