Hot banjo licks online

Westvon Publishing has announced the release of the first two volumes in their Hot Banjo Licks series on They are configured to be sold digitally, and purchasers can immediately download tabs in a PDF booklet, and accompanying MP3 audio files – or order a CD to be sent by mail.

The first two titles are Kick-offs, Vol. 1 and G Licks, Vol. 1, and are targeted at intermediate banjo pickers looking for new licks presented in a straightforward fashion, outside of the structure of full songs. These new offerings are a collaboration between Dave Russell, a banjo teacher with 30 years experience, and Sherrie Chekal, a graphic artist who plays banjo as well.

They have plans for several more volumes in this series, such as Endings, Back-Up and Tag Licks.

Free samples are available on their web site.
