Lesson #087, Eighth of January VI

Hi Everyone,

We are going to finish up on the Eighth of January in this lesson. Again there is not a lot more I can say on this tune except to always be aware of the timing. Always remember that if you are having any trouble with the timings of any of the tunes or songs presented, look to the tablature and STANDARD NOTATION just above the tab. When I did the series on rhythm and counting......that series was done to help you with the all important timings of everything you play. All you have to do is look at the measure you may be having difficultly with and look to the notation above the tab and Count the measure out with the use of the Four notes we went over in the rhythm and counting series. Those very important .......... Whole note.....Half note.......Quarter note........ and Eighth note timing counts associated with them.

Always try to have fun Everyone, Learning new things should be fun and exciting! I hope Im not boring you. lol

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 Musicmoose.org. His video hosting site revver.com was having some serious problems at the time so I downloaded as many of the lessons as I could whenever they became available. Revver.com stopped operating shortly afterwards and, sadly, Musicmoose.org 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.
