BanjoTrain lessons are based on years of teaching private students. Every student I've had is different and I adapt each lesson to their specific needs. I've seen the range of problems students consistently have and I've developed ways to address each one. In my online lessons I clearly explain the techniques in each lesson and use video and sound to demonstrate what I'm talking about.

Here are my currently available lessons.

Lesson 2
Playing in the Key of Fshows how to play in a key other than open G. Playing in F gives you a new way to play songs you've always played in G in addition to just playing songs that are in the key of F. You'll learn how to “translate” from G to F, licks to play in F, and playing in F up the neck. Songs covered include Roll in my Sweet Baby's Arm, Man of Constant Sorrow, and Wildwood Flower. There are 9 tablature example with audio and video clips demonstrating techniques covered.
