Reviews

Bluegrass Unlimited Magazine (Review): November 2000 issue It’s pretty rare to find a single video (or videos like this one) that can actually take a neophyte banjo player from the most fundamental introduction, all the way through up-the-neck solo variations, melodic technique, & single-string picking. But Greg Cahill manages somehow to do just that on this excellent pair of instructional tapes. Greg explains the basic principles of bluegrass banjo playing concisely, slowly & clearly enough that anyone with a very basic grounding in musical principles will be able to follow along with ease. Cahill begins by explaining the fundamentals of the 3-finger roll & basic left-hand chords, hammer-ons & pull-offs, then proceeds to teach a number of popular banjo tunes using the simple but effective technique of playing each tune up to speed, explaining the licks involved, then playing the whole thing again slowly. The video producers use a split-screen presentation to allow the student to watch both right & left hands at once, & a tablature booklet is included with each video. The 1st tape focuses on banjo anatomy, tuning & basic roll patterns, while the 2nd addresses use of the capo, chord positions, & melodic & single-string styles. Both tapes will make an excellent intro to the instrument for anyone interested in starting on his or her own.

Customer Compliments

Greg: I purchased your beginning banjo volune 1 as a downloaded PDF about 4 weeks ago. I can't tell you how much I appreciate your method. In comparison to some others that I have watched, your technique and presentation has made the difference between what I would consider a start and a solid foundation. The clarity of articulation and precision that you stress and play with has instilled in me a real sense of direction and aspiration. I have gotten to the point of playing Cripple Creek not quite up to your speed by pretty close. I have always concentrated on the precision and clarity which i do beleive has made a difference in my playing. I rarely write to folks that i do not know personally, but I wanted to write to you to thank you. I will be purchasing the next volume shortly. I'll keep you posted on my progress - thanks again.
