A host of great bluegrass banjo pickers all in one great compilation.

Great Banjo Lessons is a terrific compilation on DVD that features instruction by some of Homespun's most celebrated banjo pickers. The lesson segments progress from very basic to advanced, and will give players a full range of bluegrass banjo techniques.

Featured artists include Bill Keith, Pete Wernick, Tony Trischka, Eddie Adcock, Don Wayne Reno, Sonny Osborne, and Ralph Stanley.

Level 1: Novice-No prior experience on your instrument is necessary. The instructor starts with the assumption that this is your very first lesson.

Bluegrass banjo has all the drive, excitement, rhythmic complexity and melodic possibilities that you could want in an instrument. This collection of lessons, compiled from Homespun's vast library of music instruction, covers a variety of skills and tunes. The segments are graded to take you from elementary to advanced levels, and will open up myriad playing possibilities while allowing you to sample lessons before purchasing any of these DVDs in full.

Taught by seven of our most celebrated pickers, this collection will expand your repertoire, improve your technique and enhance your musical knowledge. Before long you'll be tackling everything from working on your basic rolls to playing hot bluegrass solos.

  • Pretty good =compilation= DVD

    As reviewed by Scott on 7/18/2009

    This DVD is a pretty good compilation of lessons from various players. Since it is a compilation, you never get very deep with any one instructor. You do get a sense of each one's style and you may want to get a full DVD by one of them.
