Free Banjo Tablature and Lessons

I know that everyone doesn’t have the time or the resources to attend professional, weekly lessons.  Hey, just because someone is a good picker doesn’t make them a good teacher … sometimes you just don’t have the money or your scheduling conflicts keep you from committing to a regularly scheduled session with your local professional.  I truly understand that and even though nothing can take the place of a great instructor, having some quality guidance in the form of some great free online Banjo Lessons couldn’t hurt!

 I am happy to provide you with these free Bluegrass Banjo Lessons.  I will continue to add tabs, audio recordings and even videos as I have time to shoot them.  Let me know if these are helpful and I hope that they will help you to expand your abilities as well as your musical mind.

Thanks for checking these out:

Here is my difficulty scale:

1 = Beginner – No skills necessary, only a banjo and the will to master it

2 = Easy – Basic skills necessary such as being able to change chords on command and the ability to maintain meter

3 = Easy Moderate – Basic skills plus the ability to play in shapes, not just open chords

4 = Moderate – Requires the ability to play with other people and have a solid grip on Scruggs Style banjo

5 = Advanced Bluegrass – Ranging from advanced Earl to Bela Lite

6 = Advanced Other – From Irish to Classical and other atypical, non-Bluegrass material
