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.

Ron Block: A Fresh Look At Bluegrass Banjo DVD by Ron Block. For Banjo 5 String. Methods. Acutab. Instructional video. Bluegrass. Beginning-Intermediate. DVD. Duration 225 minutes. Published by Acutab Publications (MB.DRB1). There aren't many banjos players more widely heard, or who have performed before more people, than Ron Block. Working with Alison Krauss & Union Station since 1991, Ron's distinctive banjo sound has become nearly as much a part of the group sound as Alison's voice. Ron has taught in a limited number of workshops, but this is his first instructional DVD of any kind, offering a detailed look at his unique approach to the banjo. This 2 DVD release from AcuTab begins with Ron explaining how he learned, and what resources have been useful to him, plus how he looks at both left and right hand patterns. AcuTab's John Lawless leads him through a discussion of several topics, including tone production, Ron's use of bends and chokes, how he arranges solos, and improvisation. Ron goes into great detail about his practice routine, showing examples of exercises and drills he uses to stay in shape. He discusses how to use a metronome in your practice, with several examples. He also describes a number of guitar techniques and concepts which have informed his banjo playing, such as working within "boxes," or blocks of frets, and learning to visualize and play scales and patterns both vertically and horizontally. The meat of the DVD is in the songs Ron teaches, which are played in a number of keys and tunings. You'll learn Cluck Old Hen, Tiny Broken Heart, Man Of Constant Sorrow, I'll Remember You Love In My Prayers, Everytime You Say Goodbye, Bright Sunny South, My Poor Old Heart and Smashville. Each song is played with a band before Ron breaks it down lick by lick, and is then shown (medium and slow) in a split screen orientation. Three screen orientations are available for the split screen sections, based on whether the left or right hand is of greater interest - or seeing them both at equal size. Two audio mixes are available for the band sections: normal, and banjo-heavy. 3 hours and 45 minutes on 2 DVDs, with tab booklet.

Orrin Star's Flatpicking Primer DVD. (A Comprehensive Guide). By Orrin Star. For Guitar (Flatpick). Methods. Bluegrass. Beginning. DVD. Duration 120 minutes. Published by Flatpicking Guitar Magazine (MB.FGM1007). Subtitled "What the Tab Won't Tell You," this DVD and its accompanying 23-page transcription book are designed for the guitar player who already has some knowledge of guitar chords, rhythm, and perhaps even lead styles outside of the flatpicking realm (fingerstyle, classical, blues, rock, etc.). If you already know how to play the guitar, but are not familiar with the flatpicking style and repertoire, then this DVD is for you! In this DVD Orrin Star teaches you the fundamentals of flatpicking in great detail focusing specifically on the technique and articulation. Orrin's masterful presentation of right-hand technique will help you overcome the common hurdles that many who are new to flatpicking tend to encounter. He also emphasizes the special characteristics of the flatpicking technique and style to include how to develop the "fiddle tune" feel and groove. Orrin's presentation on left-hand technique will also help you smooth out your playing by "squeezing the juice" out of every note. Orrin teaches all technical details in the context of learning songs from the flatpicking repertoire. The songs included on this DVD and tab book are: Old Joe Clark (4 arrangements), Whiskey Before Breakfast, I Saw the Light, House of the Rising Sun, Don't Let Your Deal Go Down, Soldier's Joy, Red Haired Boy (2 arrangements), and Cherokee Shuffle. Each of these song arrangements is designed to teach you specific technical skills related to the art of flatpicking (such as crosspicking, floating, Carter Style, Blake Style, integrating strums into lead playing, accenting notes to emulate a vocalists phrasing, etc.). This DVD is not just a repertoire builder. As Orrin states in the DVD's introduction, his goal is to "teach you how to fish" not simply "catch fish for you.".

Martha Mier’s The Bluegrass State visits three venerable Kentucky landmarks in three movements. The first stop is Land Between the Lakes, recreated in a peaceful musical setting with a lyrical melody and lush harmonies. Next is Mammoth Cave, a mysterious and wondrous place represented through sweeping lines and broad chords. The final stop is Churchill Downs and the Kentucky Derby, where the excitement of this annual race is seen and heard through the use of precise rhythm of the fanfare and an energetic theme. A hint of My Old Kentucky Home in the introduction of this movement brings a nostalgic touch before the action of the horse race begins. 12 pages.

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.
