Featuring Bill Evans 2 Hour DVD/tab booklet
Learn how to play bluegrass banjo backup. Taught by a talented banjo player and informative instructor you will be taught many of the ins and outs of bluegrass banjo backup in a structured clear and easy to understand way.
The first two releases in our Power Pickin’ series presented basic concepts for playing banjo backup in a bluegrass style. In this third volume, Bill Evans combines these and other backup techniques in a powerful demonstration that teaches how to build an effective acompaniment designed to fit whatever type of bluegrass song you need to backup. What makes this presentation so useful is that a variety of styles are shown, both by Bill alone, slowed down and broken into its elements, and with an actual bluegrass band in real time. All of the banjo breaks and many backup examples are included in the accompanying tab booklet.
