Important Note! The titles of our two Power Pickin' backup DVDs have led to some confusion. This edition, Power Pickin' Volume 1, is designed for players with a greater degree of facility with the banjo, while Power Pickin' Volume 2 is designed for players new to playing backup, as it teaches backup in the first position. If you are new to backup, starting with Volume 2 is the best bet. We regret the understandable confusion where you might expect Volume 2 to follow Volume 1 in difficuty.
