Here's a full-to-the-brim DVD made especially for bluegrass pickers who want to take their jamming ability to the next level. It will help you build your repertoire and will vastly improve your confidence so you can join in and jam in any situation.
In this carefully organized session led by Pete "Dr. Banjo" Wernick, a professional bluegrass band plays a repertoire of seventeen classic songs and instrumentals, providing rhythm backup in key spots so you can try your hand at taking a solo. Each song is played at a slow-to-moderate tempo, so it's easy to play along with the band.
You'll learn the ins and outs of jamming: backup basics, playing the melody, using a capo, essential jam etiquette and even what to do if you get in a musical "train wreck." The following songs are playing in a variety of keys, to give you the full range of playing experience:
Angeline the Baker, Lonesome Road Blues, Bury Me Beneath the Willow, Man of Constant Sorrow, Rabbit In a Log, Sweet Sunny South, Crying Holy, Uncle Pen, Molly and Tenbrooks, Gold Watch and Chain, Roll On Buddy, Columbus Stockade Blues, Dark Hollow, If I Lose, I Am a Pilgrim, Wreck of the Old 97, Roving Gambler, Just Like You, Paradise, Ramblin' Boy, A Beautiful Life, Bill Cheatham.
