Unboxing my new banjo!

It’s finally here everyone!!  I had things to get done before I could open it so I’ve brought you along for the ride.  Hope you enjoy!  The banjo is a Gold Tone CC-OT.

I got this banjo for several reasons.

  1. Weight – it weighs less than my WL-250
  2. Depth – the pot isn’t as deep and just for comfort
  3. I needed something that might not hurt as much if I play standing.  My WL is heavy and it hurts my neck and shoulders when I play with a strap on it.
  4. I also wanted something that was less expensive to be outside in the garden playing and toting around with me wherever I go.  Not that this is cheap by any means, but it does cost less than the WL.
  5. GT and everyone has had to change from rosewood fretboard material to blackwood.  I wanted something made with this material to give it a good review.
  6. Plus it’s never really a bad time to buy a banjo right?????

You can expect me to be playing this banjo in my videos and I’ll bet you can tell some unique differences in sound.

My #1 video for a reason

This is my #1 video of all time for a reason.  Well several reasons actually.

  1. It’s short
  2. It’s fun
  3. Breaks the technique down into 3 easy steps

If you simply follow these 3 steps you will be playing banjo in no time.  Do heed what I say about repetition though.  If you take your time with this and do it right you will have all the tools necessary to play any song easily.

From here you add on to make a song more “yours” or more “challenging”.  The best part about this method is that it’s so versatile.  You can switch it up using simple techniques and sound really good.

If you would like my lessons I have both an eBook with audio exercises, and a video lessons pack.  Both have wonderful information and both come with printable/saveable materials.  To learn more or to purchase visit Banjo Lemonade Lessons
