Watch the Banjo Emulation online guitar lesson by Joe Dalton from 100 Twang Thangs
The Big Twang course featured banjo licks in the key of G. I thought it would be nice to get some licks in a different key. The picking hand is the real focus here. Work on the patterns slowly. Make certain that they are smooth. If you can’t play it slowly, you won’t be able to play it quickly. There are only three chords in this example. The E chord doesn’t contain a third (G#). The A is an Aadd9. The B is a B7sus4. Remember to bring these chords to other aspects of your playing. Maybe some acoustic finger style, for instance.
