Course Overview

You may know what a banjo looks like, but can you name the parts? In this banjo course for beginners, follow along and learn the basics before you start to play. First, get comfortable with the design of the instrument, learn how to tune, and get tips on how to hold the banjo between your legs. Then, get advice on how to start playing by ear (no music theory needed!) and once you get the hang of things, learn to change banjo strings to keep the music sounding good and your instrument in tune.
