STRUCTURE OF BANJO MOUNTAIN
There is more to playing banjo than learning songs. Aside from the beginning skills or learning roll patterns, working on fretting, etc, there are skills for intermediate and advanced players. These range from learning intro licks and backup fills to chord inversions jamming skills. You can navigate to these sections through the menu or from the Member Home page.
UNDERSTANDING THE LESSONS
Each lesson page contains a Main Video which constitutes the core of the lesson. If the lesson happens to be a song, John (our teacher) will play it at the top of the video and then walk us through through it note-for-note with easy-to-understand explanations regarding picking and fretting. The Main Video also includes close-ups of John’s picking and fretting hands as he is playing. These Main Videos are specifically designed to simulate the face-to-face dynamic of an actual banjo lesson in the real world.
In addition to the Main Video, Focus Videos give the student a close-up view of John’s hands while he plays. Unlike most music instruction videos, these shots are from the player’s perspective, making it easier for the student to observe and simulate what John’s hands are doing. Additional Focus Videos are provided that play 50% slower, further enhancing the student’s learning experience.
