Pete Wernick has the perfect solution for novice bluegrass players who want to start jamming, or for any picker wanting to build experience and confidence. He has created a “video jam session” so that players of any level can play along with some experienced musicians and get ready for the “real thing.” Pete and his exciting all-star jam band teach the ins and outs of “jam etiquette,” the basics of music theory, and handy jamming hints such as signaling kick-offs and endings, watching the guitar player's left hand for the chord changes, making up harmony vocals, using the “number system” for calling out changes, and lots more. Whether they play guitar, banjo, mandolin, fiddle, Dobro or bass, novice pickers will soon be playing along on 17 classic bluegrass songs and instrumentals.
