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
Mike is a wonderful teacher. The lessons are clear and the tab for each measure,along the bottom of the video, make doing the lesson extremely easy. I have improved in my playing a great deal by using lessons provided by Mike.
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.
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’m from France and the lessons received are very useful and very well teached!!!!
Absolutely brilliant Mike, love your tutorials!
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.
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!
Amazing! Easy to follow and understand. Well laid out. Recommend for anyone starting or advancing in their banjo career!
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.
