Folk Music Instruction DVDs
Although traditionally folk songs are meant to be passed down through generations, it's not uncommon for traditional folk music sounds to seep in and out of the mainstream. In fact, contemporary artists like the Lumineers, Mumford & Sons and The Duhks are critically acclaimed worldwide for their fusion of folk with popular rock styles. Many folk music instruction DVDs are even hosted by famous folk musicians. For a perfect example, check out the Homespun The Mandolin of Bill Monroe (DVD Set). Featuring mandolin instruction from the late, legendary Father of Bluegrass, you'll learn over 25 tunes from Monroe's repertoire. At over 90 minutes long, this DVD set is essential for any mandolin enthusiast.
Or, if you've always wanted to play the banjo, you'll find plenty of top-rated and best-selling instruction DVDs for that as well, including the Specialty Music Productions Beginning Banjo DVD. In this tutorial, you'll be guided from your first chord all the way through to complete compositions. You'll even learn pull-offs and hammer-ons, roll patterns and other cool tricks. With this single DVD in your collection, you'll save on several months of lessons.
