Miniseries #007, Scruggs Licks Revisited III

Boogie Woogie All,

You can hear in this video that by changing a few different notes, and adding some triplets to the previous 4th String Position Lick, we have dramatically changed the way the Lick can sound, while still maintaining the "thought", and the position of the 4th string position chord.

Also take notice in this video, that even though we are doing a little single string work, we can still associate it with the forward roll........ Thumb..... Index..... and Middle.........or T I M. I have tabbed out the right hand fingering in the tablature as well, so you can look at it (measure 6) and actually see the forward motion, or roll, of the right hand . Remember......we can associate any style with the rolls of the right hand.

Note: Due to editors mistake, this video is labeled as part 2, but it is really part 3.

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.
