Pete Wernick created this “video jam session” so that novice guitar, banjo, mandolin, fiddle, Dobro or bass players of any level can get ready for the “real thing” by playing along with Pete and his exciting all-star jam band. The band runs through 16 classic bluegrass songs and instrumentals while Pete teaches the ins and outs of “jam etiquette,” the basics of music theory, how to make up harmony vocals, using the “number system” for calling out changes, and lots more invaluable advice. DVD EXTRA! Clicking the remote's “angle” button provides a close-up of the guitar player's left hand so you can follow the song's chord changes.
