Hello Everyone

In week four we worked on the following

1. I quickly reviewed the banjo tuning in relation to the G scale

2. We played a scale moving up the frets on the third (G) string

3. I then explained that the open position 3 chord is made up of the first, third and fifth of the G scale (from the 3rd, 2nd and 1st strings) The scale can then be played adding the 2nd fret of the third string and the first fret of the 2nd string. In this manner, we can play the first five notes of the G scale using three strings.

4. Next, we played the beginning part I of Dueling Banjos. We used one finger per string with your right hand. I then mentioned how you do not play consecutive 8th notes on one string with one right hand finger or thumb. I demonstrated the Reno method, where you alternate thumb and the index on the third and second strings.

5. I also had each student write in the chords for part two. Dueling Banjos uses a G, C and a D chord.

We will continue next week.

See you then.
