Miniseries #009, Reno Style III

Howdy All,
In this video you will see and hear another Reno style technique. That is the brush against two or more strings. You can use the brush for two note chords(double stops), three note chords(triads), and four note chords, or to brush against all the strings for that matter. Reno also used a cool effect on some of these brush techniques, that is to mute the bridge with part of your hand. Look to the video to get the best idea of how it may be done. A picture is know.
Rock and Roll Everyone....

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.
