Discuss the Banjo lesson: Minor Mingle

You can learn this minor mingle and have nothing to fear. Is that too far? Oh well, it’s funny. Let’s learn some minor chords and have fun doing it!

measure 3 to 4 with the 1 to 2 slide. Is that a slide for real or a hammer on. there is an H above the slide. can you please clarify.

thank you so much!!! awesome lesson

Good question Jim. It can be either, in the demonstration Ben uses a slide because it’s often done that way in Foggy Mountain Breakdown. There’s no hard rule, whatever feels /sounds best to you.

Thanks! You can do it either way, but I have it as a hammer here. I think the hammer gets a slightly different sound but not enough to hardly notice.

Thank you !!! taking my time with the lessons and working with a metronome. appreciate all of your feedback. not many pickers here in Chicago , LOL

Banjo Ben. You’re the man!Love this site and asking my wife for my birthday for the lifetime membership. One question I wanted to ask is if you’ve ever thought about adding any avett brothers (banjo) or mandolin orange wings (mandolin)


Yeah, I’d love to but it’s copyrighted and I can’t legally teach a lot of that stuff…perhaps one day! I’d love to have you on for life!
