Lesson #124, Darlin' Corey II

Hi Everyone,

There are many ways to harmonize a scale, and in this lesson we are going to harmonize the blues scale using all major chords. By playing the fourth/first string position up and down the neck with the blues scale, we are getting a Rock and Roll sound, a powerful sound, and we will relate parts of this lesson to the song Darlin Corey in the next upcoming lessons.

You can also use this harmonization using any of the three basic positions, those being the fourth/first string position, the third string position, and the second string position. Just find the root note on whatever position you'd like to use, and away you go.

Rock On,

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.
