Miniseries #005, John Hardy II

Hi All,

Lets start to pick on John Hardy. This song is in the key of G. We are going to do a few lead off notes that will lead us right into the second chord in this song, which is a C chord. We build a pattern using the forward roll over the C chord, an then, back to the G chord again in this first installment of John Hardy.

Well John Hardy was a desperate little man,
strapped on his guns everyday,
laid down a man on the West Virginia line,
You oughta see John Hardy gettin away,
Oh you oughta see John Hardy gettin away.

Keep it goin everybody,

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 His video hosting site was having some serious problems at the time so I downloaded as many of the lessons as I could whenever they became available. stopped operating shortly afterwards and, sadly, 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.
