This archival lesson by the late and much-missed bassist, Rick Danko, gives us an opportunity to hear, first-hand, how his playing propelled The Band's unique fusion of country, blues and roots-rock.

In a rare one-hour instructional session recorded in 1987, Rick details some of the exercises, picking techniques and musical ideas that formed his trademark style. With his characteristic enthusiasm and good humour, he shows the proper way to build scales; demonstrates how he uses a flatpick to get his percussive sound; provides exercises for developing bass lines; and gives 'inside' tips on how to lock into a groove with a drummer.

Rick talks with Homespun producer Happy Traum about some of his influences and experiences, and is then joined by a few musical Woodstock friends for an informal jam. This DVD is a wonderful treat, not only for bass players but for anyone interested in the music of this legendary performer.
