    I begin teaching you the basic banjo strum, or frailing.

    There are various methods of playing the banjo. Let me talk to you about what is right for you.
    * How to play "Skip to the Lou" and have fun doing it and use this method to play other songs.
    *** Teach you on your level how to play and sing / tell a story as you play.
    *** Introduce you to several playing styles that fits the music you enjoy; blue grass, folk, gospel, classical
    ***** Show you how to do the basic banjo strum using the fifth string.
    *******,Introduce you to the long neck banjo.

    + Teach basics making the complex simple. Even if you have little training in reading music, I can help you learn how to play!
    ++ How to adopt the right style of banjo playing i.e. frailing picking strumming for the music you enjoy.
    +++ How to effectively use chords and the classical method. Make the the five string sound as 4 string banjo playing the oldies.
    ++++ Buy a banjo for under $150. How to build (for $300.00) and also to play the long neck banjo and "blend in" with the group.
