The Banjo According to John Hartford: Licks, Ideas and Music, Vol. 1
John Hartford is warmly remembered for his many appearances on the 1960s Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour and who has since appeared on the Grand Ole Opry, Hee Haw, Nashville Now, and David Letterman's late-night talk show. He teaches viewers how to get good tone and effectively use hammers and pulls on this instructional video. He also demonstrates a variety of rolls, licks, triplets, and "ghost" notes. To help explain many of these techniques, he plays such songs as "Cripple Creek," "Cumberland Gap," and "Gentle on My Mind." ~ Elizabeth Smith, Rovi

The Banjo According to John Hartford: Licks, Ideas and Music, Vol. 2
The talented banjo player John Hartford returns once more to share some of his personal tricks for enhancing banjo songs. Students are taught how to do Hartford's famous "slide-whistle" lick and his "fiddle-style" melodic licks. He also discusses the best ways to use a metronome and a tape recorder while practicing and the most basic aspects of chromatic scales. Licks based on diminished and augmented chords are demonstrated, as well as banjo back-up licks and "pushing the beat." To illustrate some of these techniques, Hartford plays "Sally Goodin," "Old Time River Man," "Your Tax Dollars at Work," and "Foggy Mountain Landscape." ~ Elizabeth Smith, Rovi
