400 Smokin’ Bluegrass Banjo Licks

by Eddie Collins
Know only 20 solo licks? How about 50? 100? 200? If that’s all, then you need this book, designed to help you improvise bluegrass style solos. 400 licks are played over standard chord progressions; the use of licks sometimes will take precedent over stating the melody. The progressions used are based primarily on common vocal numbers. Some of the licks included are: chromatic licks, embellishing a fiddletune, high position licks, Reno style, pentatonic blues, boogie licks, swing phrasing, sequential licks, back-up licks and many more. Uses standard G tuning. Companion book: 400 Smokin Bluegrass Guitar Licks (#00123172)
