Overview

The talented banjo player John Hartford returns once more to share some of his personal tricks for enhancing banjo songs. Students are taught how to do Hartford's famous "slide-whistle" lick and his "fiddle-style" melodic licks. He also discusses the best ways to use a metronome and a tape recorder while practicing and the most basic aspects of chromatic scales. Licks based on diminished and augmented chords are demonstrated, as well as banjo back-up licks and "pushing the beat." To illustrate some of these techniques, Hartford plays "Sally Goodin," "Old Time River Man," "Your Tax Dollars at Work," and "Foggy Mountain Landscape."
