Most of you know a huge site update is coming soon! This involves a LOT of work. I'm spending tons of time creating new content and migrating old content (70+ hours/week), so I won't be releasing regular weekly lessons over the next month. Don't worry–it will be worth the wait! Even if you're a member, sign up here to stay up to date with the launch:!


This week we'll learn 3 banjo solos for Red River Vally in 3 different keys. But here's the kicker–no capo or retuning! Let's start in the key of C, then modulate to D and G. There's different strategy involved for each key, which is what we'll focus on the most!

Another fantastic banjo lesson Ben. I do love these tunes with multiple key changes. I don't play many tunes in D so this is an interesting challenge for me. Looking ahead to more fun stuff in the future.

Just like to add. The more I work on this arrangement the more I love it. Each Key has it's own group of challenges. I thought that when I got to the Key of G everything would be plain sailing. Not a bit of it. Things are beginning to come together as I start to gradually build speed. Great job Ben.
