The 2 P’s clawhammer banjo lessons

Discussion on the REAL importance of practice. Yes, you needed to hear this again. If you want to go somewhere, you have to have a plan. I do mention my lessons program as a side note also, (this is not a pitch video by any means) but if you are interested you can watch that video explaining the lessons program here – https://youtu.be/OS9j6bX1T1s

Don’t go there with me…

Ok sorry but I have to get real here for a second. This is a positive video, positive channel, positive, positive, positive. I will not argue with anyone about a banjo, so you can take that elsewhere. I don’t care if you call it clawhammer, frailing, or my personal favorite “flailing”. I don’t want to argue about opinions. I want to make folks smile. Thank you for watching and supporting what I do here at Banjo Lemonade!

All my tabs (banjo, Merlin, dulcimer) are available on patreon for only $5 a month.

How to arrange a song!

Ok so you’ve been playing banjo (or insert another instrument here) for awhile now and you are wanting to begin arranging songs. Or you are terrified of arranging a song and think you can’t do it. I’ve got news for you!

YOU CAN!!

You absolutely can. It’s not that hard. Ok so I recommend beginning with something you are familiar with. I mean pick a song that you know the tune in your head. Start out with nursery rhymes or something similar that is very familiar to you. Take one or two strings and pick out the melody one note at a time. Once you’ve done that, now try it on 3 and maybe even 4 strings. You’ll find you don’t have to move your way up and down the neck nearly as much. I need to also say here that you can begin a song high, low, or in the mid-range. Just find that first note and go!

Ok great! Now once you’ve done that we need to embellish it. Do that by adding in some strums, hammer ons, slide from a lower note up to a higher one, and do a pull off or two if that sounds good. Add in double thumbing, or drop thumbing as you feel there is room also. And BOOM, you’ve arranged a song.

Ah Mandy, that all sounds good but how do I really do it??????

  1. SLOW DOWN. Just relax and know that if you just take 10 minutes here you can probably pick out at least half of any nursery rhyme.

But I don’t want to arrange nursery rhymes, ugh! We all have to start somewhere right??? If you use this method a few times, you’ll be able to apply it to anything down the road. So quit complaining and get to it. You CAN do it.

Our lives are in such a rush and hurry now-a-days that people just grab some tab and copy. I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with tab, heck you know I create tabs! But how about using more than one tool to play? I mean who wants to open a toolbox and only see 1 lonely flathead screwdriver in there right? I’d like to see various tools in there. Why would you want your musical toolbox so empty?

So get somewhere alone and quiet and get it going!

Clawhammer banjo practice session walk through!

Here I take you through each step of a full practice session. I discuss drilling, here’s the video on that – https://youtu.be/iZ29XwXNiPQ.

All my tabs are available on patreon for only $5 a month.
