Power Pickin' Vol. 4: Bluegrass Banjo Master Class composed by Bill Evans. For Banjo (5-String). Boxed, Rhythm/Backup. Acutab. Bluegrass. Intermediate-Advanced. DVD. Duration 140 minutes. Published by Acutab Publications (MB.DBE3).

Master Class is not a term you hear much in the banjo world, though it is quite common in the jazz and classical music worlds. Essentially, it is a chance to attend an instructional event with a noted master of their instrument. In this DVD, Bill Evans follows the same concept, presenting an overview of techniques that will benefit any banjo player.
