M. and C. Henry – Picking up the Pace: More Slow Jamming with Murphy and Casey
Murphy Henry (creator and founder of The Murphy Method) and her daughter and Casey Henry return with sixteen new tunes, several different keys, a little more speed, and tight trio singing with their good friend David McLaughlin on mandolin. All songs include banjo, guitar, and mandolin or fiddle. They tackle some fiddle tunes, some old favorites, some hymns, and the O Brother Where Art Thou classic “Girl (or Man) of Constant Sorrow.” Each song includes a space for you to play along while they chord. Guitar chords are shown in a small box on screen. The tempos are slightly faster than on the first Slow Jam DVD, but still perfect for beginning jammers. For all instruments. Entertaining and instructive!
I Saw The Light, On and On, Salty Dog, Amazing Grace, Girl of Constant Sorrow, Old Home Place, Boogie Woogie, Roll On Buddy, Nine-Pound Hammer, Mama Don’t Allow, Arkansas Traveler, Liberty, Soldier’s Joy, Wildwood Flower, Leaning on the Everlasting Arms, Sitting on Top of the World.

The Murphy Method is a way of teaching bluegrass music BY EAR. We use no tablature in our teaching because we believe tablature is a crutch that interferes with learning to play bluegrass. We explain each song note by note, so that it is easy and quick to learn. As you learn these tunes, you are also developing your ear, so that learning actually gets easier as you go along!
We hope you will soon be joining the thousands of Murphy Method students all over the world who are learning to play bluegrass the Murphy Method way. One reason our Method is so successful is that we work with you slowly, one step at a time. First you will be learning the easy songs, which will provide a solid foundation. Then you will move onto harder songs, which won’t seem so hard because you will have already learned the basics.
Many of our students tell us that the Murphy Method is the fastest, easiest, most enjoyable way to learn that they have ever tried. And the facts speak for themselves: our students are learning to play!
