New Banjo Lessons Just Added

We’ve just added 3 new banjo lessons in the Advanced section all about the Dorian Mode. This particular mode is best known for its popularity in jazz music but it also has a very recognizable sound quality that you’ll hear in many genres. In the first lesson Tony breaks down the notes of the Dorian scale to get you more familiar with it. Click here to jump to it!

We recently added a new lesson series that combines the two great styles of Earl Scruggs and Melodic style playing into a fun hybrid style.

Don't miss the new lesson on "St. Patrick's Day" in the Celtic section which we filmed on Tony's most recent visit to ArtistWorks studios in Napa, CA.

Also don't miss another new lesson we added to the Intermediate section recently called "Index - Middle - Index Exercise".

It's a great exercise to help you get more comfortable with something most banjo players struggle with - toggling between the index and middle fingers in the right hand. This fun etude style exercise will help you develop speed and comfort, and there's tablature to help you get the patterns down too. Click here to check it out!

That's all for now. But, there's more coming soon. Stay tuned!
