I enjoy watching and learning from your teaching of the banjo on YouTube. You are a great teacher, easy to understand, and so informative. You have a way of teaching and being able to apply the lessons to immediate playing. The lessons keep me interested and motivated!!!! Thank you for the free lessons and also reasonable prices for those who want to get more involved.
Lessons always so helpful with varied content. I am in the UK so really benefit from speedy arrival of purchased lessons. Mike even tab’d a bluegrass tune for me from audio! Thanks.
I have been using the videos for about 18 months now and I find the presentation very easy to follow – usually awaiting next release with interest.
im pretty new to the banjo and your tab is easy to play. great instructor! Thanks Mike
I love the sound tracks in different speeds I play the song then I make up my own back up and return to the song it is as if I have my own band I love it.
I started the banjo at the age of 65. Being a guitarist and having visited the Appalacians in Georgia some years ago I got the urge after seeing the great pickers in that region. I have made a great deal of progress thanks to Mikes methodical and easy to follow approach. His tabs and backup tracks make this a foolproof way to learn. It’s only up to you to put in the time and effort.. I would recommend Mike’s method to anyone starting the banjo.
Mike has put together a great method for teaching the banjo, from beginner songs to intermediate songs. I know that these lessons have greatly improved my playing. I had played the banjo 35 years ago, but gave it up to raise my daughters and get them through college. I found Mike’s lessons on the internet. So I decided I needed a better instrument and purchased a Deering Golden Era banjo. Being retired, I practice one to two hours every day. I now attend as many jams in my area as possible. With mike’s lessons, I am once again playing at a high level. And having fun!!
I have started playing banjo again after 1o years. I find the lessons very easy to follow and the back up tracks are great. I don’t have anyone to jam with so these are invaluable. Many thanks. Tom.
Well taught lessons, easy to understand for a beginner, quick gratification.
Mike Hedding’s instructional videos and tabs are a real asset for me, both as a banjo teacher – for providing my students with tablature and videos to watch between lessons, and for myself – to make learning new tunes quick and easy.
