With the Brad Davis' Flatpick Jam series you are never without a jamming partner! This two-hour DVD is packed with flatpicking jam session favorites (11 tunes on each DVD). Brad plays each tune at four different tempos (slow, slow/medium, medium/fast, and fast) so that you can work on your tone, timing, note clarity, and fluidity at the slower tempos and then work to develop your speed at the higher tempos. At each tempo Brad takes a solo then plays rhythm so you can take your solo. At the three higher tempos Brad swaps solos and rhythm with you twice. This gives you the opportunity to practice your solo and rhythm seven times on every tune! On each tune Brad plays a variety of rhythmic and lead styles. A bass line and mandolin chop accompany every song at every tempo, and chord changes are indicated on-screen (for the slow tempo).Songs include: Forked Deer, Temperance Reel, Sally Goodin, Soldier's Joy, Blackberry Blossom, Salt Creek, Wildwood Flower, Billy In The Lowground, St. Ann's Reel, John Hardyand Paddy On The Turnpike.
