    There is no expiration date for the online access and you can download and keep the videos, MP3's and Tabs too. Now you can download the Music, Video and CD Tracks in one zip file! You receive instructions to access these lessons immediately after purchase!

    If you'd like to be jamming with others and want to learn how I firmly believe these backup tracks will help your progress a lot, and you'll have a lot of fun with them too. They are recorded at three speeds. I recorded the backup tracks in the recording studio at three different speeds, and not too fast either so they are suitable for beginning and intermediate level banjo students. The tempos of the songs range from very easy, (90 Beats per minute/BPM) to a slow medium tempo, (130 /BPM) to a moderate fast speed, 105 BPM double or cut time, (Four eighth notes per click).

    Includes recordings of the songs, backup play along tracks, music tablature, along with instruction tips on each song! Also includes instruction on learning how to play by the chords to the song, has easy to read tablature with accent marks for melody notes, and the backup band tracks are at three speeds to play along with! Thanks, Ross Nickerson

    Other Benefits for members

    Special tabs and videos available now free to members only
    Dueling Banjos-Original movie soundtrack transcription as played by Eric Weisberg. I tabbed this out for a student a few months ago. It's kind of hard in places mostly because the style is a little unorthodox from typical Scruggs style. It's catchy though, it must be, look how popular the song is.
    Take it Easy-banjo solo tab. I transcribed the solo by Bernie Leyden of the Eagles. It was difficult to do because the banjo is buried in the mix behind the drums, vocals and electric guitars, but a lot of pickers are curious about this one, and it seems to have been an inspiration for a lot of banjo players to take up the banjo.
    Country Roads-free banjo tab and video lesson for members too.

    …..Hi Ross, Just wanted to say thank you for the help in getting started with the banjo. It's something that I've wanted to do for a number of years, now, and I've finally committed myself to it. I've purchased some of your on-line lessons and it's been great to see my progress at the end of each practice session. The lessons are very well laid out and the videos are extremely helpful. Thanks again! Jim Kilpatrick Toronto, Ontario, Canada
