Lesson #120, Cumberland Gap VIII

Hi All,

In this video you can hear that I harmonized the pentatonic scale in yet another way. Again, you can harmonize a scale anyway you'd like, to come up with some very interesting sounds, lines, or licks. You can see and hear in one portion of this version where I worked one of modes with that harmonization in this video.

If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask with PM's or in the forums, and I will answer your questions as best I can.

About Me

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.
