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

Hi Everybody,

We can use this picking pattern and its transitions with any 4th string position chord.
We can use any of the twelve 4th string position chords and transition any of them with this sequence of notes.

We can also slide into these 4th position chords by doing the slide on the count of 1. When sliding on the count of 1, we will have to do our sliding quite rapidly to get to the next chord with good timing. A little practice and it will fall into place.

The same holds true with this sliding transition as in the first way we did it. We can use this sliding action on the count of 1 to transition between all twelve of the 4th position chords.

Happy Sliding!

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.
