Thread Name: Banjo Tab
Subject: RE: Banjo Tab
I had to bring this back to say thanks to Patrick,and let some of the original posters know, that following the basic ideas in the Youtube lessons and info in this thread that the impossible has occured.
I have been playing banjo for some time, but just recently started clawhammer, and hardly ever sang before, but following the above mentioned instructions I picked up the song "Georgia Buck Is Dead" and within 30 minutes I was playing it and singing it, and it doesn't sound half bad if I do say so myself.
It seems so simple to start with the building blocks.
Gee, who'd a thunk it?
Most of the instructional books out there always start with some kind of solo tab, which is what most of us think we want, but that is self defeating.
I've been playing music of some sort for around 35 years now, and am still learning, thanks to people here.
Thanks to Patrick, and all the people on this thread and others that I have been involved with, and thanks to Joe for giving us a place to learn.(no one says that enough, even though we all think it)
