Ron Block From Bluegrass to Akus Guitar by Ron Block. For guitar. Intermediate. DVD. Published by Acutab Publications (MB.DRB2). Not many musicians have had the sort of impact Ron Block has, on both the 5 string banjo and the acoustic guitar. His six string work with Alison Krauss & Union Station has been widely imitated, by flatpickers and fingerpickers alike, and his clear, melodic solos are a defining aspect of Krauss' sound. Ron's crosspicking rhythm on songs like "When You Say Nothing at All" is a distinctive part of the band sound, and a technique within reach of even intermediate guitarists. In this new double DVD, Ron traces his development as a guitarist from his early fascination with bluegrass through his contributions to Union Station. A strikingly thoughtful musician, he takes a disciplined approach to practicing and performing, and shares many of his insights and techniques here, in addition to teaching several songs he has recorded with Alison and others. Of particular interest to guitarists at any level is his use of one-string scales - learning to solo using only a single string. Not that this would be the ideal scenario in creating leads, but to become familiar with the fingerboard both horizontally and vertically. Ron discusses this way of thinking on almost every song. He also explains his thoughts on controlling tone and timing. The better part of the DVD is the songs Ron teaches, which are played in a number of keys and tunings. They are taken from a number of Krauss albums, and Ron's solo projects. You'll learn: Now That I've Found You, When You Say Nothing at All, Oh Atlanta, Secrets, Faraway Land, Living Prayer, Restless and The Lucky One. Each song is played with a band before Ron breaks it down line by line, and then shown again in a split screen orientation. One benefit of the DVD format is the ability to offer alternate angles of the same shot, which we use on the various split screen presentation. The viewer can select among three different screen orientations while the DVD is playing.

Published by Acutab Publications (MB.DBE1). A visual method for learning the basic techniques used to play bluegrass banjo accompaniment in up the neck positions.

Techniques covered include: --vamping - with variations--3/4 time backup--roll patterns based on chord forms --classic backup licks--2 finger backup for slower songs --bluesy backup styles One of the most challenging skills for any banjo player is being able to accompany other musicians in a jam session or band setting. Called backup, this art of accompanying singers and other instrumentalists requires the mastery of a set of traditional banjo techniques often involving distinctive sounds and licks found higher up the banjo neck. In this Power Pickin' video from AcuTab, Bill Evans takes you through a careful description and demonstration of many important backup techniques that you can incorporate into your picking right away. Each new technique is explained in detail, using a variety of camera angles and split screen formats to show you exactly how it's done. First off, Bill shows you how to use the vamping, or chopping technique. A number of right and left hand variations are demonstrated before moving into roll oriented backup. Bill describes the use of the forward roll in closed, up the neck positions as well as the popular two finger backup techniques, sometimes called "teardrop licks." A variety of right hand patterns are taught based on the different left hand chord forms and all examples are demonstrated both alone and in a band setting, using a standard bluegrass chord progression. Lastly, Bill teaches a number of popular backup licks that will appeal to more experienced pickers and shows how to work them into a song.

Learning To Hear Chord Changes DVD. (Learn Bluegrass by Ear). By Murphy Henry and Red Henry. For Acoustic Instruments. Technic. Learn Bluegrass by Ear. Bluegrass. Beginning. DVD. Duration 112 minutes. Published by Murphy Method (MB.21714DVD). For banjo, mandolin, fiddle, and guitar. Taught by Murphy Henry with Red Henry. For many people, learning to hear chord changes is one of the hardest parts of learning to play bluegrass. No matter what instrument you are trying to play. And even if you hear when a chord changes, what chord does it change to? And how do you know? This brand-new DVD will help you learn to hear those chord changes! Even if you've never heard a chord change before in your life! Murphy begins with simple, well-known, two-chord songs (like Skip to My Lou) and walks you through the process step-by-step. First she sings each song while playing the guitar. Then, going through the song slowly, she demonstrates what the song would sound like if you didn't change the chord. So you can hear that it sounds "wrong." When she moves to the "right" chord (not a hard choice when you've only got two chords!), you immediately hear that the song sounds "right." And that, she says, is the process: "If it sounds wrong, it is wrong." She then demonstrates each song with banjo, mandolin, and fiddle. She does simple strums on banjo and mandolin, and "chop" chords on the fiddle. (Which she shows you.) Red Henry, Murphy's husband, helps out on guitar and mandolin. Eventually she moves to three-chord songs, using the C chord. And later, she introduces the A chord and the F chord. She points out that each of these chords has a distinctive sound, and she tries to help you hear that.
