1. Beginnings, Endings and Turnarounds
What's more important than getting off to a good start, being able to turn a song around and repeat, or ending the song with confidence? These three pieces to the puzzle can tie it all together for you. The Beginning licks are low and up the neck intro examples that you could use to kick off a standard Bluegrass song. There are eight examples in G, five in C and and five in D. The Endings and Turnarounds have examples in G, C and D as well. These turnaround examples are used over and over in songs while playing backup or solos. If you have some down you are always ready to get in and out. All the examples are demonstrated on video slower and faster with pain staking edited tab!!

2. Must Know Scruggs Style Licks for G, C and D I've filmed a bunch of the classic must know Scruggs Style Licks for G, C and D, slow and fast. These licks or short segments of music are the key to becoming a good banjo player. The Scruggs Style just works, if you learn it correctly it gives you the foundation to build on. There are licks like the intro to Foggy Mountain Breakdown, the shave and a haircut ending and more advanced licks like the double hammer pull-off classic in Earl's Breakdown. Others include up the neck classics, C and D licks, the Ground Speed D Lick, 2 to 5 slides, pull-offs and other must know material.

3. Melodic and Single String Style Banjo Included on these two videos are building block licks in both styles. The videos also include a song in each style to practice and begin implementing or improving the techniques. On the first video you'll learn some Melodic Scales and runs, then learn the song, Turkey in the Straw demonstrated at three different speeds. Then learn some handy single string substitute licks you can use in Scruggs Style along with a challenging song, Blackberry Blossom played entirely in the single string style. Studying and learning these songs using these techniques is a great way to put what you've learned to practical use.
