Beyond Chord Melody II

As the author, Ron Hinkle puts it, ‘an important goal of this book is to help expand the definition of “banjo music” and make the banjo into a viable jazz instrument that can be played in any genre’. Beyond Chord Melody II sets you well on the road to developing your ability to improvise.

This master class begins by exploring single string technique, essential for improvisation, followed by such matters as modal sequences, passing chord patterns and tritone resolution sequences.

Note from Ron Hinkle
This book is the result of a three-year investment of every ounce of heart, soul and self-honesty that I could muster. Not only did I write it, but I also researched and taught myself the presented concepts so that I would be able to honestly demonstrate them. Frankly, I’m exhausted! But I am also exhilarated and inspired by my newly developed musical skill and knowledge. It was worth it!
