Béla Fleck Teaches Banjo Picking Styles
In this video, Bela Fleck showcases the banjo techniques that have brought him acclaim as the leading banjo player of the modern era. Careful instruction is mixed with Fleck's narration as he explains not only how to ape his licks, but how he manages to absorb musical ideas from a variety of musical traditions, including blues and Celtic sounds. Fleck also covers more traditional banjo techniques and styles including bluegrass, single string style, and harmonics. Songs examined include "Texas Barbecue," "Natural Bridge Suite," "Brilliancy," "John Henry," and "The Wind That Shakes the Barley." The video also includes tablature. It's perhaps a trifle overwhelming for the beginner, but those banjo enthusiasts with a mind to expand their game will find this video useful. ~ Rob Ferrier, Rovi
