I’ve recently started a new series of video tutorials in the Brainjo Virtual Classroom where I “walk-through” one of the tabs in The Vault (the expanding library of fingerstyle tabs for the Breakthrough Banjo course_, measure-by-measure, as you see in the video above for the tune “Cold Frosty Morn”.
These videos air live on YouTube, and then the entire archive of recordings are available to members of the Breakthrough Banjo course.
The purpose of this series is to help you work through the tab arrangements, and in particular to understand how the various techniques of clawhammer banjo sound, and how they fit together to produce a final arrangement.
This will also include demonstrations of the vocal backup for the song tabs, so that you can understand how the backup part and singing fit together.
If you want to make sure you catch these when they air, and be notified in advance, make sure you’re subscribed to the FINGERSTYLE BANJO YOUTUBE CHANNEL by clicking here.
The Brainjo “Tune Learnin’ System” – To prevent “tab dependency” and to help build the ability to play by ear, I strongly recommend using this system when learning from tabs.
The Breakthrough Banjo Course. Access to the entire archive of workshops, The Vault Library, plus all of the primary learning modules is included with membership.
