Real Bluegrass Fiddle Is Not Just Tunes

Wernick Jam ClassBluegrass in small groups is fun -- and more than memorized parts. Learn how it's done! In jams, fiddlers follow chords to new songs, provide backup and rhythm chops, and do some singing. Wernick Method Jam Camps and classes are now happening nationwide. Fiddlers needed! Pete Wernick and his certified teachers Slow-Jam Videowill get you playing real bluegrass in a jam with other musicians. Check local listings.

Can't get to a camp or class? Learn jam skills with Pete Wernick's slow jam-along DVDs.
