“How do I get started playing the banjo?”
This is a question that we receive via email on a very regular basis, so we’ve decided to create a series of posts and videos answering this popular question.
1. Learn your instrument. This lesson will help you identify the parts of your banjo as well as pick out your next instrument. There are some things that you need to look for and some to stay away from.
2. How to set up your banjo. This lesson could very well change the sound of your instrument. When your banjo is set up correctly you will get the most sound for your money, and we want that.
3. Tune your banjo. I can’t tell you how important this lesson will be. In my opinion this is a critical part of picking. If it’s not in tune no one will want to hear it especially you!
4. Play your first tune. There are three tunes that I like to start with for good reason. If you don’t have a tune under your belt yet this one’s for you.
First lesson, this weekend! See you then.
