Sammy Shelor- Banjo DVD. (A Demonstration & Analysis of an Award-Winning Style). By Sammy Shelor. For Banjo (5-String). Technic. Acutab. Bluegrass. Multiple Levels. DVD. Duration 80 minutes. Published by Acutab Publications (MB.DSS1). Four-time IBMA Banjo Player of the Year, Sammy Shelor shares his insight and experience in this 80 minute instructional video. AcuTab's John Lawless takes Sammy through a discussion of such tricky concepts as playing the melody in a roll style, effective roll-oriented backup, filling the holes on a vocal number and finding the best tone. In addition, several songs are presented in a split screen format allowing you to watch Sammy's left and right hands simultaneously. A tab booklet is provided and most examples are played both up to speed and a bit slower. While not a specifically instructional video per se, pickers at even an introductory level will find much to interest and educate in this presentation. More experienced pickers and fans of Sammy's playing will not want to miss this one.

Beyond Vamping: Fancy Banjo Backup. (Learn Bluegrass by Ear). For Banjo (5-String). Rhythm/Backup. Learn Bluegrass by Ear. Bluegrass. Beginning. DVD. Duration 150 minutes. Published by Murphy Method (MB.22185DVD). What is the first thing most banjo players want to do as soon as they have learned a few songs? They want to learn some FANCY SCRUGGS BACKUP! Now, for the first time, these seemingly difficult fancy backup licks are explained note-by-note by Casey Henry, who has been studying Earl's playing for years. Casey makes learning them easy, by starting with the simplest licks and building up to the more complex. And best of all, she shows you how to use them in real bluegrass songs. Each section on this DVD includes three to four separate lessons that teach individual licks. Then we put the licks into backup patterns for the classic numbers iThinking Tonight of My Blue Eyes," "Bury Me Beneath the Willow," "Titanic," and "Will the Roses Bloom." Once learned, these licks can be used in a wide variety of other songs, including several that have identical chord progressions to the ones taught here.
