These new DVDs from Ross Nickerson feature extremely high quality video and audio and use split screen technology. The content on the new DVDs are just what banjo players need to reach the next level. The DVDs target reducing dependency on tablature, learning to play by ear, learning to play the chords and by the chords, how to recover from mistakes, all the things that are hard to get from books. I can't tell you how excited about and proud I am of these new DVDs. I was filmed and edited in a top quality studio using split screen technology and high audio fidelity, but even more importantly, the content is going to unlock so many issues and obstacles for students. From the private teaching and workshops I have been doing especially of late, this subject matter is what students are craving for and have expressed a desire to improve on. I'm not sure what more to tell you except I really feel these DVDs should be of great benefit to you. Let me try and describe the content below.

Bonus Learning the Banjo Chord Forms Up the Neck Video that is included The DVD also comes with a 25 minute bonus video lesson on learning all the chord forms without using a chord chart. Much the way my book The Banjo Encyclopedia presents learning the chords but illustrated and shown to you on video.

Must Have!

I have not touched a banjo in twenty years. Ross's progression, clarity, and ease of understanding makes it very easy to get back in the saddle. These are plaudits coming from a person that is not easy to please! Do what Ross says and he will soon be coming to you for lessons. There are choices out there, but this is the first to consider. God bless America, God bless the Banjo, and thank you Ross for a job well done!

Your special section regarding the chord positions has been very

Ross, I want to take just a moment to say thanks. I recently received your DVD, Banjo Jamming and Play Along. I've been playing for a couple of years now and had not made any progress with the chords or jamming. Your special section regarding the chord positions has been very helpful. It was fun to learn how to make and locate the chords in ten minutes! I will refer to my copy of the Banjo Encyclopedia to further build on my chord progress. Thanks for your teaching!

Superb help and many valuable thoughts and tips...the bonus track on the "jamming" DVD is worth the entire cost.

The DVD's are excellent

Ross, You have hit a double home run! The DVD's are excellent, whatever level you happen to be playing at. I was not aware of some timing issues until your play along DVD.
Your instruction is concise and very helpful causing immediate progress with a little effort and practice.

having a great time with the new DVD's.

Ross, I'm having a great time with the new DVD's. Having the slow, medium and fast versions is extremely helpful. The slow helps in getting the rolls down correctly. Then moving on to the medium speed helps with getting the rhythm down, and it seems to me to be easier to distinguish between the eighth notes and quarter notes at this speed. I was up to the fast speed in no time, although I still need quite a bit of practice to make it clean. I'm learning a lot from these DVD's in a short amount of time, which is key for me because I don't have a lot of time to practice.
