Discuss the Banjo lesson: Cherokee Shuffle

Every once in a while, I like to put out a more advanced banjo tab/lesson that will get the heart pumpin’ and the fingers flyin’. This version of a great fiddle tune will definitely do both…it takes you up the neck, gets you plenty of melodic workout, and is built for speed!

This is my first attempt at playing this tune. The arrangement is way above my pay grade but enjoy the challenge immensely. I’ve invested 6 months of practise and made it through all the parts but may need to simplify it to play it at a jam though.


I’ve been with Ben a long time and I follow the lessons pretty closely but I missed this one.

Thanks so much for pointing it out! It is a really fun tune.
