Sam Bush slowly and carefully details the dominant mandolin styles from Bill Monroe to Newgrass. You'll see, up close, Sam's amazing right hand as he demonstrates crosspicking, rhythm chops and other techniques while teaching you tunes such as Paddy On The Turnpike, Grey Eagle, Sugar Foot Rag, " Sapporo, East Virginia Blues, Wayfaring Stranger, Manzanita, Bill Cheatham, Banks of the Ohio and Sitting On Top Of The World.
With our split-screen technique you'll easily be able to follow Sam's complex left-hand fretting as well. Invaluable for all mandolinists. You won't find a clearer, easier method for learning!
"Bush's commentary is informative and personal throughout. As with other Homespun videos featuring exemplary players, much of the value comes from seeing how they move their fingers as well as where they place them." -- Sing Out! Magazine
I am so glad that I stumbled upon your catalog. I recently purchased the Sam Bush complete package and it has been wonderful. Your catalog opened up a whole new perspective in taking music lessons for me. With the help of the great Sam Bush, I have learned on my own so much more than I would have learned paying someone for lessons. I can always go back to a lesson if I want to work on something and listen to other lessons and get the basics while I am traveling. I have fallen in love with bluegrass and your instructional format has allowed me to progress at a faster pace than I would have stumbling through books.... I will be ordering from you again soon as my playing progresses. -- Ryan Kelly
