    Some Reviews on How to Build Your Speed on the Banjo

    ...Ross, I ordinarily do not contact anyone when I purchase ther products, but I had to let you know I purchased your "How to Build Speed on Your Banjo" and in just 5 days it has absolutely increased beyond my expectations. Billy F

    ....I have found that the song Dixie Breakdown teaches so much more than just the song itself. What I am learning is transferrable to just about everything else I have learned so far. I would highly recommend to anyone wanting to improve any part of playing ability to get the course, learn the exercises, do them, and learn the song. Thanks again.

    ...I would like for you to know the exercises have already help my speed and I like the presentation". Thank you. Dwayne Glanton

    ....I have enjoyed all of the material you have offered. Thanks for being there for the aspiring banjo players of the world. Joe Meyer

    ...I've taken some private lessons but have gotten more out of your Building Speed book and CD. Bob C

    This "How to Build Speed" book is getting me movin'. The practice song is a great goal as well as super to listen. And yes, I resisted,but I finally really do see it, using a metronome = faster progress. Thanks, Dennis Lottman

    ...Ross, The Dixie Breakdown book is a great exercise. Super roll practice. Fun song to work up and demonstrate the abilities of the banjo. Keep doing the web page and training material. I would like to see more intermediate - advanced methods and tab.

    ……Many thanks, I've had a quick go with it this evening and I'm very happy. There is a lot of thought and wisdom in this book. I agree so much with a lot of it I want to shout out. I read so often on forums that "speed will come on its own", but I really don't agree. I'm certain a lot of banjo players never get past 120bpm for their entire lives. This book gives me a efficient route to playing faster - without it taking years and years. And it is necessary -- last week the guitarist I play with said "this needs to go up at this speed or it doesn't sound right" -- time to do something about it! Thanks again, Alan


    The book with CD is designed to help you learn to develop your skills to pick the banjo at faster tempos, along with improving your timing and tone. The song used, Dixie Breakdown includes 3 full solos and uses the Bluegrass Scruggs and Reno Styles.
    There is also a backup band rhythm track to practice with at three tempos.

    The tablature for How to Build Your Speed on the Banjo and transcribed in the tabledit tab program. It is easy to read, includes more detail, looks neat and improves the overall quality of the book. I also have had the original tape version re-mastered on to CD with improved quality. I've added more text and exercises to the book, including a written transcription of the spoken portion of the CD.
    How to Build Your Speed is satisfaction guaranteed or your money back.
