Product description

Review

This is probably the ultimate beginners guide for how to play Scruggs style. You start out with a simple melody line which you later can add the, ice cold licks, the cool licks, the warm licks, the hot licks and in the end the RED HOT LICKS. This is a little book with a great layout. I think everybody from 5 years to 110 with some reading skills and a CD player can learn to play bluegrass banjo with this book. --Ivar R.

Wayne Erbsen has made it his lifelong passion to teach, collect, record, perform, write and publish Southern Appalachian music and folklore. A master of both the clawhammer and bluegrass banjo styles, Wayne also performs and records on fiddle, guitar and mandolin, and has authored twenty-eight books of instruction, lore and history. An instructor for over forty-five years, Wayne has taught literally thousands of people to play stringed instruments.

In addition to Wayne’s deep interest in old-time Appalachian and bluegrass music, he has also researched, recorded and written on numerous other themes of American culture such as The Civil War, Victorian life, log cabin culture, cowboys and pioneers, railroads and gospel music.

For the past twenty-four years Wayne has taught Appalachian music at Warren Wilson College in Swannanoa, North Carolina. He is an active instructor at his own teaching facility called The Log Cabin Cooking & Music Center in Asheville, NC. (www.nativegroundmusic.com). As a book publisher, he is the founder and general manager of Native Ground Books & Music (www.nativeground.com).
