I've been pickin' all day trying to brush up on my Scruggs stlye back-up, this is something I have always struggled to grasp the concept of and as such has been neglected to some degree. However at the same time my vamping style has become more than acceptable, which can't be a bad thing.
About eight months ago I bought the book and DVD combo of Melbays Back-up Banjo which did no more than completely confuse me, so recently I purchaced a DVD from Acutab; 'Power Pickin' vol2 first position back up. This has completely clarified the concept of Scruggs style back up for me and I'm doing well 'rolling' instead of 'vamping' along.
I'll have to find some way of getting a recording or two onto here so I can get some feedback from you guy's.
Happy Pickin' Y'all
