Lesson #104, Minor Chords IV

Hi Everyone,

Practice these new chord shapes in the three full positions. Since they are new to you , they will feel a little weird at first, so take your time and get these new minor chords under your fingers.

It is also important to finger these new formations using just three notes with your left hand......especially with the second string position, and the bar position.

Practice these minor chords with the index, middle and ring finger of your left hand leaving your pinky free. This will help later when we start to work with upper neck fretting in our soloing, and in our backup in the scruggs style.

Keep it goin Everyone,

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.
