Lesson #121, Cumberland Gap IX

Hi Everybody,

We are almost finished with this song. Here is the continuation of the previous video and working ourselves almost all the way up the neck, again thinking about the pentatonic scale, and major and relative minors. Keep in mind from the beginning lessons that the 12th fret is where all of the notes start over again. Try to visualize the nut at the 12th fret and compare the chord shapes from the nut upward, to the 12th upward. They are exactly the same!

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.
