Wrap Up

Now let’s roll with B,C, D(h) and G(h). As always, beginning banjo pickers should play the G(h) on the fifth string. More advanced pickers can explore other fingering options, but don’t forget to also work on the fifth string!

Remember, scaffolding is available if you need help.

Don’t forget to do Musical Gym. It will help you internalize the ear training as well as increase your picking and fretboard skills.
