Discuss the Banjo lesson: Wreck of the Old 97 Build-a-Break

Let’s start with the basic melody, then add a few rolls, then beef it up a bit to create our own banjo solo for this great tune! Even more, let’s learn how to create solos for any song we want to play.

Im loving this lesson Ben what a great tune…



Hi Ben…one question, at solo Nbr3, measure 36…is it right you strike the last note instead of open 1st string at 3rd fred second string and run/silde into the first note of measure 37 ?..

I do play the open 1st string, but I’m also getting a slide up to the 5th fret that isn’t notated in the tab. I bet that I talk about it in the lesson.

Thks Ben…

Hey folks,it works :wink: …, able to play the tune now,slowly (120 BPM,s)

If you have TablEdit or TefView you can use it to help you increase your speed in small increments using the TAB Tef files.
