Learn Banjo! Two hours and 30 minutes of video instruction,
Bay Stomp CD by award winning banjo player Ryan
Thomson, plus a book of tablature of the 19 tunes
on the CD.
This course by award winning banjo player and
teacher Ryan Thomson is designed for lefthanded
beginners with no previous experience with
clawhammer style playing. No music reading
ability is needed. A 5 string left handed banjo in
standard "G" tuning is required. Ryan patiently
teaches how to tune the banjo and the basics of
claw hammer techniques, sometimes described as
"frailing," "rapping," and "drop thumb." Fingering
techniques such as "pull offs," "hammers," and
"slides," are explained and demonstrated and an
easy tune is taught in the first DVD. The second
DVD in the series teaches how to read banjo
"tabs," which are written music for the banjo.
Also, on the second DVD Ryan patiently teaches the 19 different banjo tunes which are on
the Great Bay Stomp banjo CD which was highly rated by the Old Time Herald. Detailed
instructions are given for 6 different banjo tunings, including A, double D, open D, and
modal tunings. The tunes range in difficulty from easy to advanced. Included is the Banjo
Tab Book with transcriptions of all 19 tunes plus lore about the tunes and a written
description of the playing techniques used in clawhammer banjo. The price for the
complete left handed kit is $59.95
