Lesson #032, Train 45 VI

Note: This lesson should probably be classified as "Intermediate". To return to the beginner series, skip to lesson #33

Hi Everyone,

Here is the last phase of Train 45. We are going to use the first section that we learned earlier to connect to the bluesy variation, stringing all the sections together to get the final tune.

Also I put a "tag" on this tune. A tag is another word for an ending of a song or tune. Take your time with this tune and try putting all of the sections together with that drive we were talking about in the introduction. Remember that freight train goin down the tracks........ Purpose and Momentum.

Good Luck with the tune all!

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.
