Welcome to banjoDen.com
Although it's been a lot of years since I have played the 5-string professionally, I still get the banjo out almost every day and still have a lot of fun playing, discovering new licks and writing new tunes. I decided to put this site up to share some of this as well as to make available some of my past recordings and tablature.
This site also has a series of banjo instruction lessons that you can take for FREE! I'm still working on them but eventually, these lessons will take you from the novice level to advanced playing. I keep adding lessons periodically. (I have included a donate button if you feel like you'd like to help me support the site.)
While there are no shortcuts and there is no substitution for a live instructor, if you follow either my lessons or some from other players, and if you practice hard you WILL make a lot of progress. Even if you're playing pretty well now and just want to improve, you can always find new things to learn out there.
As I said earlier, all the lesson I put up are free although there is a donate button if you would like to contribute to helping me keep this site up. There is no obligation to donate but you do have my thanks.
If you are already a player or just getting started, make sure you check out some of the other sites that are available now on the web like banjo hangout or some other players' sites. There is a lot of free stuff out there and a lot of information that will help you get better on the 5-String banjo.
Feel free to email me anytime and if there is a tab you would like to be made available let me know and I'll see if I can get it on the site.
