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 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.
Amazing! Easy to follow and understand. Well laid out. Recommend for anyone starting or advancing in their banjo career!
I stumbled upon your channel on YouTube. As a beginner I was practicing my rolls but I wanted to be able to play a real song. I ordered two of your basic lessons; “I’ll fly away and I saw the light”. The video breaks each song down into small manageable chunks, details every note and rhythm. After some practice I can now play a recognizable song. This makes practice so much more interesting. I’m still learning rolls and licks but now it sounds like music! 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.
Mike creates very detailed lessons and writes excellent tabs. I’ve also had Mike do some lessons with my kids via Skype and have found he’s also a great one-on-one teacher. Thanks Mike!
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!
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 !!
I’m from France and the lessons received are very useful and very well teached!!!!
I feel like you’re in the room teaching me the correct finger placement and chords. The former is extremely valuable because when I think I’ve done things correctly, I review the lesson and often times hear myself saying “oops!”. i’m a total beginner and have been practicing about one hour per day for a little over a year now. Progress is s-l-o-w, but your lessons make it fun. Thanks and keep ’em coming.
