Truefire Ned Luberecki Bluegrass Banjo Backup

Truefire Ned Luberecki Bluegrass Banjo Backup

Bluegrass banjo players love to jam and live for their break, but in reality, you spend 90% of your time playing back up. Earl Scruggs, JD Crowe, and Sonny Osborne are all known as much for their backup playing as they are for their soloing. Being a great backup player makes you more valuable in any jam and it’s absolutely essential in a band. Your one-stop-shop for becoming that great backup player is Ned Luberecki's Bluegrass Banjo Backup!

"In this Bluegrass Banjo Backup course, we'll work on approaches for basic vamping, syncopated vamping, and rolling backup. I'll show you a few of my favorite chord fills and licks. We'll work on up-the-neck moves, using passing chords, and backup styles you can use for slow songs and waltzes. We'll apply these backup approaches to some of the most common chord changes in bluegrass!"

Ned organized the course into 7 sections covering all of the nuts and bolts of playing backup in a band or at the jam. Ned demonstrates all of the lessons and then guides you through playalongs so that you can put your backup skills to work in a real musical context.

You'll get standard notation and tabs for all of the key examples and performances. Plus, you'll be able to use TrueFire's online learning tools or desktop and mobile apps to sync the tab and notation to the video and loop or slow down the videos so you can work with the banjo lessons at your own pace. All of the backing tracks are included to work with on your own as well.

Grab your banjo and let's get to playing some backup with Ned Luberecki!
