Our Clawhammer Banjo instructor Evie Ladin recently hosted a second live Zoom workshop on how to Demystify the Banjo Neck, concentrating in this workshop on double-C tuning. Evie answered questions from her Peghead Nation students and presented her helpful process for envisioning the neck of the banjo and using movable chords and shapes to play any kind of music on the five-string banjo. You can watch the video from this workshop above.
In this workshop, you’ll learn the basic chord shapes in double-C tuning, how and why they move around the neck, and how to best use this information to translate any music you want to play to the five-string banjo.
We suggested a $25 donation for workshop attendees and we had a donation jar available at the event (and below if you’d like to donate now), but we want you to be able to enjoy the workshop regardless of your financial circumstances, so please feel free to donate what you’re able to.
And sign up for Evie’s Clawhammer Banjo course on Peghead Nation to keep learning after the workshop!
