You CAN Play Your Favorite Bluegrass Songs!

Author: Dennis Caplinger
Format: Book with 2 Enhanced CDs
Instrumentation: Banjo

This book and two CD combo is like having a friend show you all your favourite bluegrass songs. Bluegrass virtuoso Dennis Caplinger teaches you the techniques and concepts you need to start playing hot bluegrass banjo right away---all in the context of 16 classic bluegrass standards. The included CDs feature full explanations of all techniques and songs, and demonstrations of all the music examples. For each song there is a slow tempo demonstration, a complete demo track featuring a world-class bluegrass band, and a complete band track without banjo for you to play along with. Plus, with the included TNT software, you can slow tracks down, loop sections, and even change keys for ultimate usability. We've even included a short refresher course on music theory, and a banjo chord dictionary in the back of the book.

"With just a little guidance, you can be playing great bluegrass without spending years on boring exercises and scales." - Making Music magazine
