BANJO STYLES 101

CHOOSE YOUR AXE

I TEACH 4 STYLES OF BANJO; CLAWHAMMER, SCRUGGS STYLE, MELODIC (these are on 5-string banjo) AND IRISH TENOR (4-string). MOST STUDENTS START WITH CLAWHAMMER THEN, IF DESIRED, MOVE TO SCRUGGS STYLE.  IF YOU WANT TO PLAY IRISH TENOR THEN WE NEED TO TALK.

IF YOU DON'T HAVE AN AXE (0R PREFERRED STYLE)

WELL, I CAN HELP YOU DECIDE WHAT DIRECTION TO TAKE BASED ON JUST A FEW QUESTIONS. MOST BEGINNING STUDENTS HAVE HEARD SOME BANJO ALREADY AND JUST LIKE THE SOUND. WITH SOME INFORMATION, I CAN REFER YOU TO TO THE CORRECT BANJO AND TEACH YOU TO PLAY IT. YOU SHOULD CONTACT ME.

ONCE YOU HAVE THE PROPER TOOL FOR THE JOB

THE REST IS FAIRLY EASY IN TERMS OF GETTING STARTED.  I CAN TEACH YOU FROM BEGINNER LEVEL TO RECORDING STUDIO LEVEL PLAYING. REMEMBER, YOU HAVE TO HAVE THE TIME AND MOTIVATION TO DO THIS. IF YOU HAVE ALREADY TRIED TO LEARN FROM THE INTERNET WITH LIMITED SUCCESS, YOU SHOULD CONTACT ME.
