“If you’re a novice musician, this is the video for you.” — Bluegrass Now
Anyone, with any instrument, can get into this bluegrass jam session, even if you’ve never tried it before. All you need are four basic chords (G, C, D and A) for the entire DVD! These are shown, with simple right hand rhythm instruction, for all six standard bluegrass instruments:
Banjo – Guitar – Mandolin – Dobro – Fiddle – Bass (for fiddle and bass, single notes are shown)
This DVD will build your practice skills and build the confidence you need to join a real jam session. Pete Wernick makes it real easy, giving encouragement, instruction, and advice on how to hold fit right in when you jam with others.
Here are 17 favorites that are often played at bluegrass jams. All are played at slow, easy to reach tempos where you can follow chord changes, just as everyone does at real jam sessions, by watching guitar chords which are enlarged on the screen for easy viewing.
DVD includes a full printable booklet with all words and chords to all songs and a full section of bluegrass jamming ground rules and pointers.
