Pete Wernick now has the perfect solution for novice bluegrass players who want to start jamming, or for any picker wanting to build experience and confidence. He has gathered several top musicians to create a "DVD jam session" that players of any level can get in on. Here's an opportunity to participate in this wonderful activity, and get ready for the "real thing" -- so grab your instrument, put the DVD in the player, and pick along!
Pete and his exciting all-star jam band teach you the ins and outs of "jam etiquette," along with the basics of music theory, handy jamming hints, and lots of other invaluable information. You'll learn to change chords and play solos for 17 bluegrass standards. Regardless of the instrument you play -- guitar, banjo, mandolin, fiddle, Dobro, bass -- you'll soon be playing along with the great songs and instrumentals on this DVD. Best of all, it'll be fun to make music with Nick, Sally, Eric, Michael, Ben and Pete as they play through the repertoire at an easy-going, slow-to-medium tempo. They even leave a place in every song for you to try your own solo!
The songs you'll be jamming on are: "Old Home Place," "Blue Ridge Cabin Home," "In the Pines," "Footprints in the Snow," "Salt Creek," "How Mountain Girls Can Love," "Soldier's Joy," "New River Train," "Sitting on Top of the World," "Long Journey Home," "Worried Man Blues," "Hot Corn Cold Corn," "Handsome Molly," "Take Me Back to Tulsa," "Don't This Road Look Rough and Rocky," and "Blue Moon of Kentucky."
NOTE:This DVD also has a special feature that allows you to use your "angle" button to choose to view either the band or the guitarist's right hand during the tunes.
