Overall Comments

I got this DVD a few days ago, and I highly recommend it: 30 of Diane's Favorites

It's not your normal clawhammer instructional DVD. She introduces each tune and then plays it. That's it. No wasted time describing what she's doing, and both hands are visible at all times. It's intended mainly for intermediate level players who don't rely on tab. The tunes are sorted by tuning -- a nice touch. Most of the tunes are new to me, which makes it even better. She claims that it's for instructional purposes, rather than for entertainment. But she's lying. I liked this DVD so much, that I sought out a program that let me rip the DVD to MP3 files so I could listen to them without having to watch.

Great stuff. There's lots of clawhammer instructional material for beginners, but Intermediate players tend to be overlooked. Every banjo instructor should do this. Thanks, Diane.
