Discuss the Banjo lesson: Banjo Chord Walking Backup

https://banjobenclark.com/lessons/banjo-chord-walking-backup-banjo

This is a truckload of a backup banjo lesson! We will: 1)Learn basic Rolls 2) Learn to walk to chords 3) Apply what we’ve learned to “Unclouded Day.”

I just made up my own G to C walking backup arrangement. Let me know what you think. I really like the placement of the E note in the second measure with the square roll. I think I will use that more in the future. JoesBackup.pdf (31.6 KB)

I’m really liking how this lesson makes me think about playing banjo constructively and creatively.
Being a beginner, I’m doing all I can to play Ben’s tab but his instruction eludes to a bigger picture.
The discussion of scale and chord notes, beats, timing, rolls, and etc. is all just plain awesome!
Great stuff…
