This machine surrounds hate and forces it to surrender.

I consider this DVD a must-have for any Pete Seeger fan. He sings and plays entire songs, so it makes it great for musicians or people looking just to be entertained. If you're looking to learn how to play banjo, and are not familiar with a stringed instrument, getting this dvd only will leave you slack-jawed. You'll have to buy his book "How to Play the 5-String Banjo" to get started. In this dvd he shows strumming styles, picking styles, how to make extra sounds with your left hand, and many other things. He plays many songs including "Ode to Joy", and a wonderful blues song...who woulda thunk, blues on the banjo? It is awesome. (And btw, a xeroxed copy of his book is NOT included with the dvd, as someone stated in another review. It is a small book of banjo tablature of some of the songs on the dvd. )
