Bluegrass Banjo From All Sides

Photo for Ad 114052

Bluegrass Banjo from All Sides focuses on fifteen common jam session tunes, offering many different arrangements for each tune. The arrangements are presented in varying levels of difficulty. The reader will work through standard melody and harmony arrangements, playing backup in a bluegrass setting, playing backup behind fiddlers, and even two-banjo harmony. Further, the tunes offer a catalog of banjo techniques that can be applied to one's overall banjo approach and licks to be absorbed into one's vocabulary. Altogether this book demonstrates the stylistic versatility of three-finger banjo, as well as its identity and character. The book comes with accompanying online audio.
