Discuss the Banjo lesson: O Little Town of Bethlehem

Simple, beautiful, and tasty…just the way I like 'em! You can learn this!


That A note after “the everlasting light” phrase was a really nice, unexpected touch. Well done!


Thanks Ben! I love these “easy to work up and play” Christmas songs. I never thought i could use my banjo in a church setting until you came along to teach me how to craft my own arrangement of a song. I was able to play Hark the Herald Angels Sing on my banjo in worship for the church we recently joined! I used your build a break idea where i learned the melody then added rolls and licks to fill it out. It was a hit! Looking forward to using this arrangement of O Little Town! So appreciate your teaching…you make it fun to learn!!
God bless you brother and Merry Christmas!
