Nine Pound Hammer: Beginner Banjo Lesson

Here’s a beginner arrangement of Nine Pound Hammer for the the banjo! In this arrangement, there are 2 different versions. The first has a basic rhythm structure: one measure of quarter notes, followed by one measure of eighth notes in a forward roll pattern. The second version mixes the quarter & eighth notes within several bars. Both versions do not use any ornaments (slides, hammer-ons, etc), making it less complicated for the left hand. The video lesson for variation #1 is available free below.

  • Break down the solo at a slow tempo, with explanation;

  • Plus backing track to play along with!

Full membership only $10/month and gives you access to all video lessons, tabs & charts!
