Miniseries #005, John Hardy III

Hi All,

Lets continue on with John Hardy. Lets go back to C chord again. This time we will use a variation on the C chord. If you look at this video you will see the first two finger C chord is in the second string position, then, we slide up to the C chord using the third string position (barre position). So we are using the second and third strings positions for our variation throughout the C chord.

Also in this variation is a 3-2 pull off on the first string. Try to make your left hand techniques just as nice and clean as you can, always striving for that clean sound.

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 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.
