A recurring complaint we have heard from new players is that so many beginner books or videos try to cover too much material, too rapidly for the average inexperienced student to quickly absorb. The Learn To Play Bluegrass Banjo DVDs cover smaller amounts of information, but in a much more thorough manner - with careful, detailed explanations and lots of close up views of both hands.
