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 Mike’s lessons, it’s like having an instructor sitting there with you. He is quite an accomplished artist and if you can’t learn something from his free lessons you just might need to try harder. Thank you again for the free lessons.
Been struggling for years with all sorts of courses and lessons. Mike’s lessons are crystal clear. He throws in many useful tips and is a great encourager. I’m definitely gaining freedom.
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 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.
I love Mike’s style of banjo teaching. His lesson videos are just great and he is very clear and precise with his instruction. Mike has such a nice easy and relaxed style. Great tabs too! It’s a real pleasure to learn from him – thanks Mike!
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.
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 learning the banjo for about a year. I love the book “Intro to Melodic banjo”. The practice routines, scales and theory are just what I need right now. There are a lot of great tunes to keep me happy for a long time. I am learning “Liberty” from the book and I have to be patient with myself . I have small hands and have to spend time getting some of the stretches right.
Well taught lessons, easy to understand for a beginner, quick gratification.
