Overview

Over 190 licks and picking patterns at your fingertips for the 5-string banjo! Quickly and easily select picking patterns by chord to substitute in songs you already play, or combine patterns of your choice to create your own arrangements. The licks are organized and grouped by type, use, and by chord for on the spot improvising, arranging, and for changing a song you already know to make it "yours!"

This easy to follow Picking Patterns Chart includes: traditional bluegrass licks and popular variations, roll patterns and variations, melodic style patterns, common up the neck licks, back up licks and moveable patterns for any chord, "famous" patterns by chord, licks identified from songs, moveable patterns by shape, licks for specific chords, pick up notes to begin a song, and popular endings. This easy to follow layout is organized for study as well. Students who follow this chart in order, from the first lick to the last, will find that it also teaches "lick" theory as it pertains to the identification, development and applications of licks in a brief, easy to understand method. A suggested exercise on how to improvise completes the chart.

This chart fills a gap in understanding and applying banjo licks for all level players. It builds on the knowledge base of 5-string banjo students with an easy to follow layout by pattern type and technique. . . AND, is fun and easy to use! For all levels - especially the intermediate player - Standard G tuning, Key of G.
