Beginning Bluegrass Banjo

Do you enjoy the traditional bluegrass tunes of Earl Scruggs and the Stanley brothers, folk rock artists like Bela Fleck and Mumford & Sons, or the 'newgrass' sounds of Nickel Creek, Punch Brothers, and Yonder Mountain String Band? They all had to start with the basics - and so can you! Learn to pick and strum traditional bluegrass tunes in this class for beginning banjo players with little or no prior experience. You'll learn to play by ear, without music or tablatures.
