Janet breaks her concepts down into their basic components, making them crystal clear in lay terms. The various back-up techniques are separated into categories determined by song tempo, by lead instrument being accompanied, and by the area of the fingerboard in which the chords are being played. In notation and tablature. 240 Pages.

FOREWORD

The primary aim of this book is to present, explain, and exemplify the basic techniques commonly used on the five string banjo to accompany vocalists and/or instrumentalists. "BACK-UP" is simply another term for "ACCOMPANIMENT'.
This book is designed so that a beginning student of back-up can become accomplished at playing back-up for many different songs, using the techniques commonly used by many professional banjo players. The basic outline of the book separates the various back-up techniques into categories. These are determined by the tempo of the song being played, by the lead instrument being accompanied, and by the area of the fingerboard in which the chords are being played. The first section of the book deals with general back-up techniques, which can be used as back-up for songs played at ANY tempo (speed), and which can be used as back-up for ANY lead instrument playing the melody. As the book progresses, each style of back-up becomes more specialized Each section of the book is also designed so that it first discusses the basic techniques and uses for a particular style of back-up, and then goes into some of the means for adding polish to that style of back-up. Thc guidelines and the back-up patterns offered throughout this book are based upon common practice among professional banjo players, and will, hopefully, provide you with the tools for playing effective back-up for many different songs.
Happy Pickin' Janet Davis


INTRODUCTION
What Is Back-Up?
A banjo player normally plays accompaniment at least 75% of the time when he is playing with a band or with another musician, orwhen he is singing, while only about 25% of his effort involves playing the melody of the song. Therefore, an important aspect of playing the banjo is the art of playing back- up.
"BACK- UP" is simply another term for" ACCOMPANIMENT".
Back-up played on the banjo consists essentially of a combination of two elements: CHORDS & RHYTHM. For most styles of back-up, the left hand works from chord positions, while the right hand plays specific fingering patterns. The same patterns can be used as back-up for many different songs.
Which patterns are used for a specific song will be determined primarily by the tempo of the song, and by which instrument is playing the melody.
The art of playing back-up on the banjo can, in many respects, be compared to the art of building a structure with a set of blocks of various shapes and sizes. The same set of blocks can be used to build many different structures. All of the blocks might be used for one type of building, whereas only a few blocks of a specific shape might be required for another building. Certain blocks might be more useful for foundation purposes (i. e. for support), while other blocks might serve more ornamental functions. Each style of back-up contains a definite set of patterns which can be used over and over as back-up for many different songs. How the patterns are used. where they are placed in the context of the songs, when
embellishment techniques are used,--all of these things work together to determine the overall effectiveness of the back-up for a specific song.

 

VAMPING
VAMPING is a commonly used back-up technique which involves playing
rhythm and chords. This technique can be used as back-up for any song, to
accompany any lead instrument or vocalist. It can be used as the only backup
technique throughout an entire song, or it can be combined with other
styles of back-up. The vamping technique can be used with any chord, or
with every chord in a song. You can't go wrong using the vamping technique
as a style of back-up. Although vamping is often treated as a beginning back
-up technique, its' use is by no means limited to beginners. Many great
back-up artists use this technique frequently! The vamping style of backup
is particularly effective for breakdowns and for other fast instrumentals,
such as "Foggy Mountain Breakdown", "Earl's Breakdown", and "Flinthill
Special". It is also effective for up-tempo vocals such as "Footprints In
the Snow" and "Salty Dog", as well as for slower paced songs such as "I
Wonder Where You Are Tonight". Jazz tunes are frequently supported by
vamping. The vamping style of back-up is often used as the primary style
of accompaniment for guitar and dobro lead breaks.
"Vamping" is effective ONLY if it is played correctly. It is NOT simply
picking chords to the rhythm of a song. Vamping also involves
DAMPENING the strings with the left hand, after each chord is plucked
with the right fingers.
STE PI: Hold a chord position with the left hand.
(Hold the full position--all four strings. ) G

STEP 2: Pick the 1st, 2nd, & 3rd strings
with M, I, & T of the right hand
(simultaneously). * This should sound the chord.

STEP 3: Now, partially release the pressure on the strings with the left
hand. This should STOP the tones from sustaining. DON'T LET
THE CHORD RING AFTER THE RIGHT HAND PLAYS IT. Release
the pressure of the left fingers, but DO NOT lift the fingers from
the strings. The left fingers deaden the sound in this manner.
(The 5th string is not used with this technique.)
NOTE: When chording up-the-neck, on the higher pitched tones of the banjo,
the right hand should pick the strings in the area of the banjo where the
fingerboard joins the head, well away from the bridge, ("Y" position).
*The early style of vamping involved picking only the first two strings with
the right hand. The third string was added sometime later, giving the backup
a fuller sound, and providing stronger harmonic support for the lead
instrument.
