Bluegrass banjo man Russ Sprouse is back with the latest installment of his series of lessons. Here you’ll learn three different movable chords which will allow you to play any major chord at any place on the fretboard. Russ has been kind enough to provide both pictures and MP3 files.
In his second lesson, Russ introduces us to TAB for the banjo and guides us through some basic finger picking patterns. He also pays particular attention to the dynamics of picking, which is a topic many a guitarist could use advice on!
This is the first in a series of lessons on the 5-string banjo. If you’ve ever wondered about this beautiful instrument, here’s your chance to learn more.
