Well taught lessons, easy to understand for a beginner, quick gratification.
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!
Absolutely brilliant Mike, love your tutorials!
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.
Hi Mike, I just wanted to say how happy I am with your downloadable banjo instruction videos. Clear precise instruction, professionally presented, also good to have the songs at different tempos that’s a real help. Keep up the good work.
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 love learning from Mike! His teaching method is very to follow in that he breaks the tunes down measure by measure, explaining, and showing, placement of both hands. (I’m one who learns best by sight so I just cover the tab with paper.) The additional source files are terrific and I appreciate how he takes licks and/or techniques from a particular tune and teaches, in a separate video, how to implement them in other tunes.
I have found Mike to be the best teacher of bluegrass banjo some teachers are too fast and showy. I like Mikes tab compositions they are faithful to the original. I would love Mike to bring out a book of instruction and tabs of his repotoir together with a dvd
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 purchased “what a friend we have in Jesus” Lesson. I purchased it because I liked the rolling Scruggs style. The videos were very easy to follow the practice tracks were great too. Great product, great price.
