I want to thank you so much for your advice.
Your emphasis on melody first is something that I overlooked for years.
Songs like this help.
I would even say that I should learn backup after melody. THEN learn a lead break.
It sure helps me. It also helps me to play with others.
Also thanks for the left hand fingering. A tiny thing. But VERY important.
Thanks also for the scale and left hand exercises.
I am very new to the banjo. I’ve only been playing it for a few weeks, so this lesson is difficult for me. However, it has been great for teaching me how various techniques can be used and how Scruggs style bluegrass is built. I’m forcing myself to learn it measure by measure — even if I sound terrible because I lack the basic skills.
