Banjo CD-Let's Kick ItBanjo CD
Let's Kick It - Ross Nickerson on Pinecastle Records

Straight ahead banjo playing featuring Pinecastle Recording Artis Ross Nickerson and members of the band, Blue Highway, Rob Ickes on Dobro, Shawn Lane Mandolin/Fiddle, Tim Stafford, Guitar and Wayne Taylor Bass. Engineered by Scott Vestal. 14 songs in all.

Let's Kick It features fast tempos, explosive solos and some great new bluegrass music. The band rips up some great Bill Monroe standards, swings Lady Be Good and drives home other standards like Little Maggie along with Nickerson originals, Roundhouse and Feeling Low. 

This "incredibly hot" banjo project must have been filled with jet fuel the way it took off after I started playing it

Ross's new album is on fire!!! I listened on my car CD player and forgot which road I was traveling

Note from Ross Nickerson
From the very beginning of when I started playing banjo I've always enjoyed sharing my knowledge and helping others learn to play the banjo. Through the years of experience I've had, teaching privately, and also traveling all over the US, Canada, Europe and Australia teaching group banjo workshops I’ve gained many unique insights into the common obstacles facing banjo students today. I've listened to my students, seen the challenges they face, understand what students are craving for and always strive to deliver practical, focused instruction in a personable and easy to use manner.

I launched BanjoTeacher.com in 2001 and I offer my many banjo books, DVDs, CDs, Online Videos, advanced banjo dvd videos, intermediate banjo lessons and lots of free resources for banjo students. We have a members only online lesson site and I have been offering banjo lessons online since 2002, even before the advent of YouTube. My business has also grown into a large banjo sales operation featuring pro set up and advice along with offering unique gear and supplies specifically for banjo players.

I've written the top selling banjo book "The Banjo Encyclopedia", “Bluegrass Banjo from A to Z” as well as many other books, CDs and DVDs designed to help you, the banjo student, save time and learn the fun of playing 5-string banjo easier and perfect your banjo technique.

Here is a link to the Banjo Encyclopedia. The Table of Contents featured on this page for this 240 page book will illustrate the many topics that could be covered.
