The Easiest Place For Beginners Learn Banjo

If you’re a total beginner, then this is the place for you. Joff breaks everything down note by note, bar by bar, with all the essential bits repeated in slow-motion and close-ups, so you’ll find it so easy to make fast progress playing the songs your friends and family will love to hear you play for years to come.

  • You’ll learn the secret to getting good fast that most banjo teachers don’t teach or even don’t know.
  • The little-known (or used) banjo technique that’ll make playing the banjo more fun, more satisfying and even more straightforward, without people realising you’re doing it.
  • Why most banjo lessons are too difficult for beginners, and how you can fast-track the challenges by doing a few simple things that’ll be more fun to do.
