Discuss the Banjo lesson: Nine Pound Hammer- Basic

A standard parking lot pick, this is a great straight-ahead version to sink your teeth into, even if you don’t normally like to chew on hammers.

Hey ben! Just wanted to get your opinion. So the way I’ve been progressing through the lessons is to get to where I can play the slow version at 1.5 speed. So you think I’m good to keep going once I get that down


Nothing wrong with moving on as long as you can play the song from memory and go back to it a few days later.

If you need variety to stay interested, definitely move on.


@Mark_Rocka has perfect advice here!
