Tony Trischka’s "Hot Licks for Bluegrass Banjo" has long been considered one of the best books ever published on bluegrass banjo picking styles. It provides a comprehensive survey of great licks along with insights into how they are actually used in songs and instrumentals.
Now you can hear Tony himself play every one of the 650 licks as written in the book on audio-enhanced CDs. Tony breaks the licks down into three stylistic sections: Scruggs and Beyond, Single-string, and Melodic. You'll learn lead-ins, endings, back-ups and even a "celebrity section" that features favorite licks of J.D. Crowe, Don Reno, Bill Keith, Pete Wernick, Bela Fleck and other classic players.
This exciting two-CD series will give you an encyclopedia of licks and will stimulate you to create your own hot banjo style. Book sold separately or as a money saving package.
