Today, bluegrass is played in a wider variety of keys than ever. Learn how to create convincing solos in common but challenging keys such as D, C, F and G - without a capo. Pete makes it easy to learn how to combine melodies and roll patterns so you can solo on any song. He explores nine bluegrass standards, taking each song's melody and showing how to weave it into smooth rolls for a full arrangement. Adding appealing licks, bluesy variations and other embellishments gives your solos polish and interest. "As I Went Down to the Valley to Pray," "Angeline the Baker," "New River Train," more. Intermediate. Tab included as PDF file on the disc. 115 min.   More Details...
