Wes Corbett visited the Peghead Nation studio to record the first lessons for his Contemporary Bluegrass Banjo course last year. In addition to his work playing in the Molly Tuttle Band, Joy Kills Sorrow, the Bee Eaters, and other popular acoustic music ensembles, Wes has a long-running duo with his friend, hammer dulcimer master Simon Chrisman, who was able to come by the studio to play a few tunes with Wes.
In this video, the duo plays the traditional favorite “St. Anne’s Reel,” including a fun improvisational section along the way. It is a great take, and gives you a sense of what this creative duo does both in live shows and on their self-titled duo album.
In Contemporary Bluegrass Banjo with Wes Corbett, Wes teaches intermediate-to-advanced players the style of three-finger banjo used by Béla Fleck, Noam Pikelny, Ron Block, and others. With lessons on single-string and melodic style, fingerboard theory, improvisation, and more.
