Banjo Lessons on improvising by Geoff Hohwald and Jim "Duck" Adkins. These intermediate level banjo video lessons cover how to improvise in the Scruggs or Melodic Style. These lessons will teach you a series of banjo licks and then show you how to incoporate them into famous songs.
Powerful Up the Neck Lick by Geoff Hohwald is a free lesson that will teach you about playing above the 14th fret of the banjo neck. The resulting sound is very explosive and really catches the listener's attention. Geoff will show you how to play the lick in detail at multiple speeds and with a jam track of Train 45. To learn more, check out our Up the Neck Improvisation Package.
The Complete Banjo Improv DVD Special by Geoff Hohwald features four DVD/Book sets on learning how to improvise on banjo. Banjo Improv 1 covers a simple concept called lick substitution that you can use to spice up a large variety of songs. In Improv 2, you'll learn a series of licks that you can move around the neck depending on what key the song is in. Improv 3 moves on to the pentatonic scale and jamming on the spot with a hint of the blues. Finally, we'll use Up the Neck Improv to add high notes and excitement to a break. Each lesson features video instruction, written tablature, and rhythm tracks for practicing.
