Vamping: Beginning Banjo Backup by Murphy Henry. For Banjo (5-String). Rhythm/Backup. Bluegrass. Beginning. DVD. Duration 120 minutes. Published by Murphy Method (MB.22027DVD). Vamping - Beginning Banjo Backup Learn how to vamp to all the songs on our Beginners' Banjo Videos. And what is vamping? When you vamp on the banjo, you are playing just chords, no melody. Vamping is what you do when the other person is playing the melody or playing the "lead" or "taking a break," as we sometimes say. 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.

Jim Van Cleve - Become a More Complete Fiddler by Jim Van Cleve. For Fiddle. Methods. Acutab. Bluegrass. Beginning. DVD. Duration 240 minutes. Published by Acutab Publications (MB.DJVC1). Unlock the secrets of improvising in traditional American fiddle styles with this Grammy-nominated stage and studio master. In only ten years as a professional musician, Jim Van Cleve has made quite a name for himself in bluegrass and acoustic music. He's spent time with Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, saw his debut solo CD nominated for a Grammy and toured all over the world with Mountain Heart. He's become a sought-after Nashville session player and one of the most admired fiddlers in bluegrass. Jim covers many things on these 2 DVDs, but they really break into three sections. After some discussion about early learning experiences, AcuTab's John Lawless leads Jim through a discussion on improvising and building solos on a number of popular bluegrass standards. Two songs, Banks of The Ohio and Pretty Polly, are each played and demonstrated in 3 different keys. Before demonstrating the tunes, Jim breaks down the scale and common positions for each key in turn. He shows where to find the melody, and where adjacent double stops are located, as well as licks and phrases that suit each song. Attention is given to both playing a melody-based solo and what a fiddle can do to assist the band sound in accompaniment. He also carefully teaches four songs he has recorded - three of his own (Nature of the Beast, Devil's Courthouse and #6 Barn Dance) plus Bill Monroe's classic Wheel Hoss. After being slowly demonstrated lick-by-lick, they are each shown (fast and slow) in a split screen orientation. A printed booklet with standard notation for each of these songs is included. Two screen orientations are available for the split screen sections, based on whether the left or right hand is of greater interest. Simply switch between them using the Angle key. Over 4 hours of instruction on 2 DVDs.

The American Fiddle Method Vol. 2 Piano Accompaniment by Brian Wicklund and Bob Walser. For Keyboard (Piano). Methods. American Fiddle Method. Bluegrass & Country. Beginning. Book. 72 pages. Published by Mel Bay Publications, Inc (MB.99472PA). ISBN 9781840038774. Bluegrass & Country. 8.75x11.75 inches. Private studio teachers, school string programs and Suzuki teachers preparing for recitals will welcome these tasteful piano accompaniments for the violin, viola and cello editions of Volume 2 of Brian Wicklund's American Fiddle Method. Acknowledged as the most widely used fiddle method in the country, Wicklund became aware of the increasing demand for a parallel piano accompaniment series and engaged his friend Bob Walser to take on the task of writing it. Collaborating closely with Wicklund, Walser was encouraged to adhere to the chord progressions suggested in the original books, but given leeway to add interesting variations in rhythm and harmony. The result is a book of arrangements that welcomes pianists to the jamming circle. Piano playing teachers, parents and siblings can now join in the fun, and fiddle tunes can be featured in concerts and recitals with the support of an accompanist. In addition, principals of accompaniment learned by playing these arrangements can be applied to accompanying other tunes, the voice or other instruments. The American Fiddle Method itself provides the beginner with the elements needed to become a proficient fiddler. Based on many years of teaching experience, the author introduces concepts and techniques that yield solid results. This method encourages creativity in the student by including variations of the tunes to illustrate how they can serve as a basis for improvisation.
