Creating Guitar Solos for Banjo Instrumentals with Chris Jones


Please Choose:

Info only……

What do you do when they say: “TAKE IT DOC,” but you don’t know a break to the song? You say, “NO THANKS, I’LL PASS”. Pretty embarrassing & not much fun. You’ve seen guitar players who can make up a solo on the spot & you’ve wondered how they do it. The beginner approach is to string together a bunch of licks that fit the chords. The correct approach is to embellish the melody much like decorating a Christmas Tree. 

In this exciting DVD Chris Jones shows you how to translate banjo instrumentals into guitar instrumentals, by replacing the fingerpicked banjo roll with the more linear “guitaristic” componentry, while maintaining the integrity of the original banjo rendition. Watch Chris as he analyzes & teaches 5 example songs, one step at a time. This “system,” will allow you to invent your own intelligent, solo for any banjo instrumental you encounter!
