Know only 20 banjo solo licks? How about 50? 100? 200? If that's all, then you need this book, designed to help you improvise bluegrass style banjo solos. These 400 licks are played over standard chord progressions; the use of licks sometimes will take precedent over stating the melody. The progressions used are based primarily on common vocal numbers. Some of the licks included are: chromatic licks, embellishing a fiddle tune, high position licks, Reno style, pentatonic blues, boogie licks, swing phrasing, sequential licks, back-up licks and many more. Uses standard G tuning.
