Learn how to create convincing banjo solos, both "on the fly" in jam sessions and with more precision in your practice time. Pete starts with the basic chords and rolls - showing you how to instantly play a "placeholder" solo, the easiest way to step out in a jam session. He gradually builds in "filler" content - simple moves and phrases adding variety and believability. Working with five bluegrass standards, he shows you how to hunt down a song's melody and create a full-fledged arrangement featuring the recognizable tune. Adding appealing licks, lead-ins, tags and other embellishments will give your solos polish and interest. Tab included as PDF file on the disc. Beginning/intermediate. 120 min.
