From the private teaching and workshops I have been doing especially of late, this subject matter is what students have strongly expressed a desire to improve on. I'm not sure what more to tell you except I'm confident these DVDs will be of great benefit. Ross Nickerson
The content on the new DVDs targets what banjo players are craving for to reach the next level. The DVDs target reducing dependency on tablature, learning to play banjo by ear, learning to play by the chords, how to recover from mistakes, all the things that are hard to explain and demonstrate in books. This content should unlock many common difficulties and obstacles facing students today that are learning from tablature books.
The comprehensive DVD instruction will help you play on your own, learn to memorize quicker, understand how the chords work and learn to jam on banjo by knowing only the chords. The DVD includes loads of practical tips for the student wanting to pick on the back porch, play with others and progress faster.
Tips and exercises to improve your chord changing ability and practice backup. How to improve timing, pick steady, simple to more advanced improvising, add slides, hammer-ons, pull-offs to chords and how to find the melody in the chord.
Includes instruction on learning the chords to songs, playing along when you only know the chords, playing up the neck by ear, also using minor major and seventh chords.
