Miniseries #005, John Hardy V

Hi All,

Now we are going to the C Chord again. This time we are going to use another variation over the C chord. We are going to use the C7th chord in this variation. I'd like you to take a look at the C7th fingering in this video. This goes back to previous lessons on 7th chords, and you can see by sliding this formation up the neck two frets we get a D7th chord. We will use the same fingering when we get to that portion of the song.

I'd like to mention again, with the theory you've already learned, by using that C7th chord formation, and working your way up the neck one fret at a will get.....starting with the C7th.....then up one fret to get a C#7th, D7th, D#7th, E7th, F7th.....(rememeber no #'s or b's between E and F, and B and C),F#7th, G7th, G#7th, A7th, A#7th, B7th, and back to our octave, or twelve frets away to form another C7th chord up the neck. We can also say C7th, Db7th, D7th, Eb7th, E7th, F7th, Gb7th.....etc.

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.
