Intermediate Bluegrass Jam Session

Comments from Satisfied Customers

“I really enjoy playing along with this video! A good selection bluegrass songs/tunes played at moderate speeds (for me) in various keys to keep you on your toes. Pete also discusses a number of interesting topics related to jamming and accompanying others. Overall an excellent practice tool to get you ready for real jams!”

“I was frustrated, feeling like I was losing my “touch” since I am not currently playing in a band…well, my girlfriend bought me your intermediate jam video and I have something to play along with and a chance to play my own breaks instead of playing over top of someone else’s….I feel I have got back in step with my picking and it feels good!”

“Watching your video is pure inspiration. Ive played keyboard in the past and love to sing, until now mainly ballads but you know! Ive always had the banjo in the back of my mind then a couple of years I got one and ive never stopped playing and every week I learn something new. Ive spent the last hour or so jamming along to the intermediate video.”

“By the way, I can’t say enough about your jamming videos, they are OUTSTANDING!!!!. I own all of them and they give me material for our local jams as well as a ton of practice!”

“You should look into Pete Wernicks Jam-along videos, of which there are three. I believe. He brings a top notch group of musicians to play many popular songs, and in between tunes discusses the basics of keys and harmonies among other things. I have been playing for about seven months, and feel they have helped a lot. Also, if you have questions about anything on the videos, he is readily available for questions on his website. I have found it much better than any of the “educational” products out there, because it more or less tells you to pick it up, have it tuned, play the right chords, and have FUN. Good luck.”

“check out Pete Wernicks jam videos. They’ve helped me get through many a winter day when there was no one to pick with. Great musicians playing standards at a managable speed. Also check out Pete Wernick’s Bluegrass Song book. Tons of standards in there. What’s great about this book is that it has the lyrics, chords and melody of each song.”

“For those beginners or intermediate players who can’t find jams or who feel intimidated by them, one of the best ways to gain experience jamming without subjecting yourself to embarrassment or hostility, and for those who would just like to practice jamming between actual jams, I highly recommend Pete Wernick’s terrific bluegrass jam videos: Bluegrass Slow Jam for real beginners, Bluegrass Jamming, and Bluegrass Jamming Intermediate–even for old time players.”

“Last year I bought your video ‘Beginning Bluegrass Banjo’ and two of your ‘jamming’ videos. I cannot tell you what fun they have been and what it has done for my playing of both guitar and banjo – they have really re-kindled my interest in the banjo.”

“Hi Peter, I’m the clawhammer banjo picker who contacted you awhile ago. Went to my first slow mixed jam organized by James Reams in Brooklyn across from Prospect Park. Your videos helped pave the way for me to become a successful musician in that not only did I have a great time, I was prepared for most likely anything even when the first song out of the box was in the key of E in 3/4 time. Figured out what to do using your suggested # system. Everything else was relatively easy. Started using your intermediate video. Thanks”

“Your jam tapes are awesome for learning to jam. I can’t thank you enough for producing these videos as I find them so good at teaching the novice player to change chords fluently.”

— B.B.

“Pete’s jamming videos are so full of great advice, you gotta watch them multiple times.”

— J.W

“I have been playing daily with your jam video. It forces me to play an entire song rather than just ‘noodle’ around and be lazy when I have the banjo out and get discouraged. I’ve already seen and feel improvement.”

— S.M.

“It is so cool and so helpful, to put that thing on the TV and put yourself in the middle of a bluegrass band and play with them. It’s particularly powerful when you have a surround sound system. “

“My husband is learning guitar and we have all 3 of your jamming videos and LOVE them! They are a real instructional boost for him (and for me, too).”

“I bought the three jamming videos from JDMC – absolutely love them.”
