As one of the resources in the Ear Laboratory, I’ll be creating videos where we move, step by step, through the process of building a clawhammer banjo song, by ear, from the ground up.
This and the other resources in the Ear Lab are an extension of the “Playing By Ear” modules inside of the Breakthrough Banjo course, and as such it is strongly recommended that you proceed through those modules before working through the videos here.
Video #1: “Pretty Polly”
Video #2: “Angelina Baker”
Video #3: “Old Molly Hare”
Video #4: “Miss McLeod’s Reel”
Video #5: “You Are My Sunshine”
Video #6: “Walking Cane”
The Playing & Singing Tutorial Videos
The Playing & Singing Workshops are also a great way to build your ear learning abilities. In these workshops, we’ll deconstruct a song, picking out the chord progression, then work through various ways to arrange vocal backup.
