Discuss the Banjo lesson: Grandfather's Clock

This is a really old tune that has always been a favorite melody of mine. I wanted to teach it, but I also wanted to incorporate a principle as well…inside rolls! Many times banjo players become entrenched with their right hand picking patterns, and this song will break you of that! We need to be able to use our middle finger on the inside strings, and if you’ll stick with this lesson, you’ll be sure to free up your middle finger for a worthy purpose.
