The first DVD was designed to help inexperienced soloists create “convincing” banjo breaks on the spot in jam sessions. The new release takes the same approach but covers keys other than the banjo’s home key of G. Wernick demonstrates how to find believable solos in D, G and F without utilizing a capo, and also looks at soloing in G higher up on the neck.
To demonstrate these skills, Pete plays through some familiar bluegrass songs, including a number he recorded during his time with Hot Rize.
Songs taught include:
As is common for music instruction videos, close ups of both hands is part of the program. The DVD also has a printable tab booklet as a PDF file on the disc.
