Lesson #128, Darlin' Corey VI

Hi All,

There are only a few things I'd like to mention from this video. One of them being that in this first version, the two finger C chord position is being held almost all the way through this first section. Even at the 4th and 5th frets, its still that C chord second string position.

Also I'd like to mention that you can choke a string in any direction you wish, whether it be towards you or away from you. Try it both ways and use what works best for you.

I'd also like to mention that is good practice to try different rolls, or anything else that differs from the tab in any way that feels, and sounds most comfortable to you. This is the best way to get you own style underway.

Roll away,

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.
