Bluegrass Banjo 1

Earl Scruggs took the three-finger banjo style he learned from Snuffy Jenkins, added finger picks, syncopation, and speed and created the sound of bluegrass banjo. The five banjo classes in the Bluegrass Banjo series will take you through the techniques needed to play in a bluegrass style. The classes will work from the book The Complete 5-String Banjo Player by Tony Trischka. In level 1, you will learn tuning, correct hand position, your first chords, right hand rolls, and songs. This class gets you ready for Bluegrass Banjo 1 Repertoire!
