I just got an e-mail back from Pat Cloud on my question about Blues Banjo techniques and the style to make the BLUES sound on a banjo today and here is what he said:

He has a short blues instruction video that is available for free to anyone who will send him an email asking about it. This is a great instructional video that gets down to the basic's of the blues on the banjo. It will take me a while to get it all down and be able to master this part of it, but it is very worth watching if you are into this.

Go to his site and send him an email using the link provided and he will get the link for the video to you.

I got mine! If you have worked with Mr. Cloud's book, some of the scales will be familiar. Its reasonably short, about 10 minutes. Starts with scales and progresses to playing a three chord (G/C/D) blues progression.

Oh, and if you haven't worked with Mr. Cloud's book, consider it. I can't say I have mastered the material, but I have enjoyed trying.

i wrote to pat cloud too and got his blues video . man that guy is total class! he explains the scales and gives some demos of playing them and i'm having a great time playing around with the ideas he gives on the video.

did anyone else write him for the video? i was really happy he wrote back because i have visited his page a lot of times and i think he's a very cool musician. he seems a very nice guy too from his email.

I got the video the other day also. I always loved the blues and want to play it in the banjo.

Pat Cloud reminds me of the quote taken from Aristotle; "Those that know, do. Those that understand, teach". Pat Cloud knows and understands. He is a great teacher. Get his book "Key To The Five String Banjo" and you can get some great ideas on how to use pentatonic scales in the blues.

Tried to message back saying mail was undeliverable. Any ideas?
