The Best of Jack Hatfield

by Jack Hatfield
sku: 02-22072M
Book/Online audio set. Anthology of Hatfield's most successful teaching arrangements, jam session favorites, show tunes and original compositions. Although it is not a teaching method per se, there are many arranging concepts and general tips included in the performance notes. Sections 1 & 2 are a supplement for beginner and intermediate students. Section Three is basically a lick and repertoire building resource for more advanced players. This section, with the exception of two arrangements, is previously unpublished material. Hallmarks of Jack's teaching style include melody-oriented arrangements, the use of well-known songs for the beginner, teaching tunes essential to the bluegrass banjo player's repertoire, the use of bold-faced melody notes, and an extremely graduated approach which builds on previously learned techniques and licks. 112 pp.   More Details...
