I now have two banjo instruction videos available for immediate download from TrueFire! The first is Beginning Banjo and takes you from absolute beginning, through your first chords, licks and songs. The second one is Jam Session Survival Guide and it's just what it sounds like. It's full of tools and techniques to help you learn how to play a solo in a jam to a song you've never heard before.
The TrueFire platform offers some really cool features like being able to adjust the speed of the video, so you can practice as slowly or as quickly as you'd like, three-camera HD video so you can see close-ups of both hands, tab is included and features Soundslice which scrolls along the tab in real time while I'm playing the examples. There are also jam tracks for the examples where I recorded a guitar track for you to play along with. Please take a look at the preview videos here and see what you think:Add Comment

Steve Martin describes Ned Luberecki’s playing as “an absolutely joyous, riveting, beautifully syncopated example of the beauty of the banjo.” Ned is one of today’s leading players and teachers: a master of the five-string banjo who is adept in both modern and traditional styles. In 2018 he was voted Banjo Player of the Year by the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA). He has taught hundreds of players at most every major banjo and bluegrass music camp in the world and his Complete Banjo Method, in three volumes from Alfred Music, and video banjo courses from TrueFire.com are garnering rave reviews. Ned tours internationally with the award-winning Becky Buller Band and in Nedski & Mojo, his duo with Sam Bush band guitarist Stephen Mougin. Ned counts as his influences not only the usual banjo heroes with names like Earl, J.D. and Tony but also Eddie Van Halen, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Oscar Peterson and Dave Brubeck. These diverse influences emerge in his unique, sometimes whimsical approach that draws from rock, jazz and television themes (!) as well as bluegrass. Ned’s latest release is the critically acclaimed CD Take Five. Learn more about Ned at nedski.com
