From Ross Nickerson: I arranged and recorded some of my favorite bluegrass banjo gospel songs specially for this Book and Audio combo. I hope you enjoy picking them.
Ross Nickerson Gospel Songs for Banjo Made Easy is a collection of gospel favorites arranged for bluegrass 5-string banjo. The arrangements stay true to the classic three-finger “Scruggs style” techniques with the melody skillfully woven in.
On the 68 audio tracks, Ross plays each song at three speeds with a rhythm track for each song to practice along with.
The Audio demonstrations by Ross Nickerson included with Gospel Songs Made Easy for Banjo has been modernized and is now available as "online audio" on the publisher's website.
