Miniseries #004, Take this Hammer + 7th Chords and Backup Discussions VII

Hi Everyone,

As we move up and down the fingerboard with the seventh chord double stops and triads, we can associate their locations with the three basic chord positions. By this I mean that we are expanding on the three basic positions.......sort of like branches from the core of a tree.....these extensions are branches from the core of the three basic positions. You can look upon these extensions the best way you see them in your own visualizations of the branching off any of the positions you see fit. I sometimes look at them as the nearest extensions to the nearest position.

The extensions of the double stops, triads and closed position chords are all moveable as well. We can move them up and down the fingerboard to cover all of the twelve notes.

I will be discussing many more things about chords in future lessons. We will keep expanding on things we have gone over previousl. We will continue to Rock and Roll on the Banjo!

About Me

My photo
In 2009, at the age of 60, I decided to learn to play the 5-string banjo. I searched the internet for lessons and struck gold when I found David Cavage's free banjo lessons at His video hosting site was having some serious problems at the time so I downloaded as many of the lessons as I could whenever they became available. stopped operating shortly afterwards and, sadly, is no more. I contacted David early 2020 and he told me he no longer had the original master videos and feared they may have been lost forever. This amazing course of free banjo lessons, from absolute beginner to advanced player, is too good to be forgotten, so this is my attempt to get David's work back out there again so that he can teach, inspire and spread the joy of banjo pickin' to more generations of budding musicians, just like he did with me. I've rounded up all the Moose stuff I could find and put it here, so start pickin' and enjoy!-------MooseHerder.
