Sample text

After you’re in tune, you want to adopt a comfortable playing position for both sitting or standing. You have a lot of individual options in this regard. Just remember to not raise the neck too high and try using a strap. If you follow these two suggestions, you can be well on your way to finding your personal comfort zone. In Chapter 2, you can get comfortable holding the banjo, fitting the strap, and getting in tune with an electronic tuner or another instrument. Fretting chords with the left hand A chord is three or more notes sounded together.

From finding a teacher to attending a workshop, camp, or festival, you can have more fun with the instrument and become a better player faster by connecting with others who share your enthusiasm for the banjo. As a new player, don’t wait until you’ve already acquired some playing skills before seeking help from others. You’ll become a better player much more quickly by seeking out help at the very beginning of your banjo adventure. In Chapter 12, I talk about the world of banjo that lies beyond your doorstep.

Chapter 2: Meet Your Banjo Even if you follow my instructions carefully, I’m sure that you may discover the following frustrations when tuning the banjo in this way (but don’t “fret” — you aren’t alone): ߜ Your reference point is always a fretted string when tuning from a lower- to higher-pitched string. You need to lift the left hand up to adjust the tuning peg of the string you’re attempting to tune and then fret it again on the lower string to play the reference pitch. ߜ If you make a slight error at the beginning of this process, that mistake is exaggerated as you proceed to try and tune the rest of the strings.
