Banjo lesson from banjochris
« on: September 14, 2010, 10:15:06 PM »
I taught a banjo workshop at the Equinox Festival in CA on Sunday, and instead of providing tab or anything like that I told the attendees I would make a video reviewing the basic concepts I taught. So I thought I'd share it here, too, if anyone is interested. It's a quick beginning lesson on old-time thumb-lead two-finger banjo picking using the song "Groundhog." It's a great style on banjo and not too hard to pick up, especially for guitar players. So I hope you enjoy! (Any questions, feel free to ask.)

Thanks very much for this, Chris. Excellent timing as I try to start some two and three-finger stuff.

Thanks for posting that, Chris, it sounds great, and is presented very clearly.  I love those pinches, we used to call those "dropping bombs".
All best,
Johnm

I had a sort of play though after and it makes sense, I await the next lesson!

A good flappy bass drum is more fun to drop bombs with  ;)
