Lesson #129, Darlin' Corey VII

Hi Everyone,

You can use some basic rolls and licks within this version to use as backup as well. Take simple rolls, and play them right through the verses, or to compliment another instrumental break. Most of the time its the simplest rolls that sound best. One of them I used in this video is a simple alt.thumb roll.

Try this song at different tempos/speeds. Its good practice to try different speeds on different tunes and songs just for right hand practice alone.

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.
