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

Hi Everybody,

Lets finish up the series. I hope you all enjoyed this little mini-series on Take This Hammer and some of the back-up that can go along with it. We will continue to explore an infinite number of possibilities in our playing.....whether that be soloing or back-up. We will continue on a great musical journey.

In my ending comments in this video, I mentioned a few words about discouragement. Don't ever feel discouraged! even though sometimes things may not seem to be sounding right, or you may be having difficultly with some of the things you are trying to play. Everyone goes through it, its part of the process of learning. Sometimes I'll get a little frustrated with my I'll put the banjo down for a few days......pick it back up.......start to play and hear new things.

Keep it going Everybody,

Have fun,

Study well,

Rock On.

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.
