Banjo Instructional DVD * Author: George Grove * Beginner Level * Duration: 90 minutes If you’re among the millions of fans who love the signature sound of the Kingston Trio and want to create it on your banjo, this fun and easy lesson is for you! Playing his long neck Vega 5-string, veteran Kingston Trio member George Grove teaches the banjo style, originally created by Dave Guard, that has long been instantly recognizable throughout the world. George’s mantra is "Keep it simple," and his series of "fake frails" enable you to get a strong, rhythmic sound with easy-to-learn strumming techniques. Add a note that he calls "the toggle," and you get the unmistakable Kingston Trio sound that has influenced countless players and groups through the years. You’ll learn a variety of skills that can be used to enhance any song you choose to play: song intros, accents and syncopations, chord progressions, parallel thirds, picking patterns and rolls, and other left and right hand techniques. Before long you’ll be playing and singing along to classic folk hits "Tom Dooley," "M.T.A.," "A Worried Man," "Three Jolly Coachmen," "Hard, Ain't It Hard," "Corey, Corey," "Early Morning Rain," "Coast Of California" and "Rolling River."
