Banjo Lessons



The Banjo is a four-, five-, or occasionally six-stringed instrument which is typically associated with country, folk, Irish traditional and bluegrass music.  Two common banjo styles are rolls and drones.  Rolls are right hand accompaniment fingering patterns that consist of eighth notes that subdivide each measure.  Drone notes are quick little notes always played on the 5th string to fill in around the melody  notes.
