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

Hi Everyone,

1-3-5 3-5-1 5-1-3
1-3-5-7b 3-7b-1-5 5-1-3-7b

The top numbers are our triads in fourth, second, and the third string positions.
The next set of numbers are our 4 note seventh chords associated with the triads.
We can play the combination of numbers anyway we want to get our triads and our seventh chords.

Remember as well that the third string position triad (barre position) at the twelveth fret ........ 5-1-3 the same as the open string triad..........5-1-3

We are working on four note seventh chords at the moment, seventh chords that contain all of the four notes of the 1-3-5-7b
We can get the "color" or "sound" of the seventh chord in different ways, and I'll start to discuss this is the following lessons.

Rock 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.
