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.

An alternative medicine to pills and the like. I want you to use these songs like friendly weapons. Wield them gaily at gatherings-parties, concerts, restaurants, business meetings, railway stations, airports, political demonstrations. You'll spread happiness, contentment and peace wherever you sing them. If we only had an army of ukesters singing these numbers we could march into any troubles part of the globe and within moments every belligerent would lay down their arms and surrender. Soon all would be joining in the fun. Pull out your ukuleles and follow the dancing print.

Published by Mel Bay Publications, Inc (MB.21549BCD). ISBN 9780786682706. Bluegrass. 8.75" x 11.75" inches. The melodic style is a beautiful three finger picking style which can be traced to the early 1900's and became a fully accepted style for playing the five-string banjo in the 1960's, and is today an integral part of the three-finger style of many banjo players at all playing levels. Plus, the songs arranged in this style are easy and fun to learn. Although the melodic style may sound impossible with all of those notes coming from it, surprisingly you will find that it is not that difficult to learn and no previous musical knowledge is needed. This course covers the melodic style from the very basics of this picking style to the advanced techniques and provides many fun to play and well-known songs arranged in the three-finger melodic style for upper level beginning players through advanced level players.
