Learning to read tablature will open up a new world to your banjo playing. If you’ve never really grasped the concept of reading from tablature stay tuned for our “how to read tabs” video. I’m getting ready to record a screen shot video of some banjo tab in tabledit software.
I sat down with our mystery student yesterday and one of his first questions to me was about tablature. I immediately realized that this would be the perfect starting point for beginning banjo students. If you can read tab then your on your way to teaching yourself the banjo!
We’ll start with quarter notes, and then progress to how to determine where your hand goes on the neck of the banjo. Reading tablature will really speed up the learning process for you and help you to learn some new songs very quickly.
The beauty of tabs is that you can immediately see what someone else is playing. There’s no more doubting whether or not you’ve got the right lick. Keep you’re eye on the blog for this video.
