Miniseries #007, Scruggs Licks Revisited I

Hi All,

The next series is going to be a continuation in the Lick department. Eventually, we will have many, many licks built up in this section.

The Licks we are going to go over in this series are based on the Scruggs/Crowe style.

We can also relate these licks to the previous lessons on the Pentatonic Scale, and the lessons on relative minors. If you haven't gone over those lessons, I encourage you do so, because in doing so, you will see and hear where these licks are coming from.

Keep it rollin,

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.
