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.
At my age I thought I would never grasp the basics, let alone play a few songs on the banjo. But at 55 I’m impressed at the progress I’ve achieved. Thanks to Mike’s easy to read tabs and concise instructional videos,I have been able to follow his lessons and play my very first instrument . Keep up the good work !!
Mike is well qualified and a great teacher. His videos are easy to follow. He is very approachable. I highly recommend you try his lessons.
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.
I just happened to run across one of your free lesson’s on the Internet. I have been playing and just spinning my wheels for many years. I really started to improve after watching one of your lesson’s I was at the point of just giving up the banjo. I have only taken one lesson and that was twenty years ago. I am pretty much starting all over again and I really feel that because of you method I am really enjoying playing again. So thank you for doing what you do!
Amazing! Easy to follow and understand. Well laid out. Recommend for anyone starting or advancing in their banjo career!
I’ve worked my way through many of Mike’s beginner lessons and now I’m starting on the intermediate lessons. His arrangements are excellent at both levels, and his videos will walk you through all the trouble spots! These lessons are a great way to add to your repertoire. This music is fun to play!
So much content available and all of it so very well explained! Being able to bounce around to various lessons and then go back and check what I thought I learned against what Mike actually taught, has really advanced my playing. I’m thrilled with my progress! Thanks Mike!
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’ve found your lessons incredibly helpful. You explain everything really clearly and the material you choose is varied and interesting. I also really appreciate the fact that you have things to develop all the skills, as well as learning songs, and that you explain which skills a particular song will help with. I’ve learned a huge amount from your lessons. Thank you so much.
