im pretty new to the banjo and your tab is easy to play. great instructor! Thanks Mike
I enjoy the structure of the videos and arrangements of the tablature. Some parts of the videos challenge me, while other parts re-inforce my picking vocabulary. I just want to keep learning, have fun and keep the fingers rolling. Thanks.
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 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!
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!!
Mike delivers an excellent “package”! His lessons are direct and to the point. I like the fact that you can purchase as little as one song at a time at very affordable price. A lesson/song includes three videos, tab, and three different Mp3’s with choice of speeds! Start slow and work up to full speed if you choose. Lessons also includes, full screen video of right hand and left hand as well as the tab embedded in the screen. Mike will walk/talk you through the entire tune as he plays at a slow enough speed, making it easy to follow. Highly recommended!
I am a banjo player. 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.

Absolutely brilliant Mike, love your tutorials!
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!
