Discuss the Banjo lesson: Big Sciota

Those of you who know me know that I love me some melodic banjo and this screams for it. This is classic melodic style, and we throw in a little single-string and inside rolls for fun!

I never played this one until I saw your lesson. It is popular at local jams. Thanks so much.

That 2-3 hammer-on in measure 26 is just plain outstanding. This is something I would expect to see in the “Banjo Hall of Fame”. I mean, is it your finger strength or are you doing a millisecond wiggle after the hammer? I know you are busy but if there is a method or a way of learning this perhaps down the road you could explain it. Fantastic!!!

Nope, no kind of wiggle in there, but that is probably the hammer-on that I “hit” the hardest.
