: Beginning Bluegrass Banjo

Through his books, videos, classes and workshops, Pete (Dr. Banjo) Wernick has probably gotten more people playing bluegrass banjo than just about anyone. His video, "Beginning Bluegrass Banjo, " has been one of Homespun's most popular titles since it was issued in 1986. Now we are making it easier than ever for new players to get started.

This is the perfect course for those who want to play three-finger style bluegrass banjo from scratch. You may never have touched a banjo before, but Pete will have you picking right from the opening minutes of this tutorial. After getting tuned up and learning some easy chords, Pete teaches you the basic rolls and left-hand fingerings that make up your first bluegrass instrumental. As you progress, you'll learn how to add slides, hammer-ons, pull-offs, and a variety of right-hand rolls in the three-finger bluegrass style.

By the time you finish this course, you'll be picking favorite bluegrass songs, including Buffalo Gals, Mama Don't 'Low, Columbus Stockade Blues, Handsome Molly, Shady Grove, Worried Man, Big Ball In Boston, Red River Valley, Roll In My Sweet Baby's Arms, Jesse James, Lonesome Road Blues, Little Maggie and That Good Old Mountain Dew.

This program is available for viewing either with a Roots Channel subscription or as a standalone purchase.
