Miniseries #005, John Hardy VIII

Hi Everyone,

Continuing on with the D/D7th chord leading back to the G chord to finish this song up. Remember the three finger chord formation for the previous C7th chord? its the same formation we are using for a portion of this D7th section.

Before I finish typing, I would like to say as well that, you can take a piece of any previous licks or sections and make them your own. You can add different left hand techniques to make it your own, you can change the timing of the licks to make them your own, you can do many things with a previously learned piece of music and then play around with different sections or licks to see what sounds good to you. Always remember.....If it sounds good...It is good.

Keep it going Everyone, If you have any questions about anything, give me a holler.

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.
