Your first banjo lesson!

Get started on the right foot and start playing music you enjoy right away.

A recurring complaint Acutab heard from new players was that so many beginner books or videos try to cover too much material, too rapidly for the average inexperienced student to quickly absorb. The "Learn To Play Bluegrass Banjo" DVDs cover smaller amounts of information, but in a much more thorough manner - with careful, detailed explanations and lots of close up views of both hands.

Learn how to:
Tune your banjo
Read tablature
Re-string your banjo
Fit and use banjo picks
Hold the banjo and the basics of proper left and right hand positioning
Ensure that your banjo is set up properly when you start
Play some simple chords and picking patterns and start playing songs right away
Pick out the basic melody for several familiar songs
