These chords are all 4-finger chords made up the neck (in the higher positions on the banjo). When you vamp, these chords are played on the off beat. All of this is explained on the video! On the video, we show you how to make these chords, and we go over the chord changes to each song, one beat at a time. As always, we stress learning to hear and play these chord changes BY EAR. This video is a MUST for the beginning banjo player! Lots of slow playing so you can play along. Ending licks taught for each song.

A Guide To Non-Jazz Improvisation: Banjo Edition by Dick Weissman. Edited by Dan Fox. For Banjo (5-String). Improvisation. Bluegrass. Beginning-Intermediate. Book/CD Set. 136 pages. Published by Mel Bay Publications, Inc (MB.20832BCD). ISBN 9780786675937. Bluegrass. 8.75" x 11.75" inches. The non-jazz improvisation series is a concept that germinated in Dick Weissman's mind while he was attending music school. He wrote a 15-piece arrangement of the old square dance tune, Cripple Creek, and wanted the trombone to take a solo as part of the arrangement. When the trombonist kept playing a bebop solo that was totally unsuitable for the chart, Dick realized that - in addition to the many musicians who do not improvise - there are even jazz musicians who don't know how to improvise outside the limits of their own stylistic backgrounds. This book approaches the five-string banjo as a musical instrument freed from the prison of specific musical genres. Old-time music, clawhammer, bluegrass and many eclectic adaptations of the banjo are utilized to demonstrate a variety of musical styles. A number of the selections are in different tunings. All examples are written out in traditional and tablature notation.
