I thought I would start a thread where we can share licks that we have learned/created that might be of help to others.
I will start with a couple I gleaned from Ron Stuarts’ playing. I had the privilege to jam with Ronnie a few times many years ago down in IN at a festival we both played at.
Lots of banjo players have trouble playing back-up and making transitions to the next chord when starting (I know I do) so I thought I’d share a couple things that helped me fit into simple three chord songs when trying to roll through the lower register while backing up vocals/instruments.
First is going from G to C and the second goes form G to D
