About Jack Hatfield’s Bluegrass Banjo Method
EXTREMELY GRADUATED APPROACH – Only one new idea introduced per lesson. Each lesson builds on the information presented in previous lessons.
BOLDFACE MELODY NOTES – Visual aid to which notes to emphasize, making the melody obvious.
CONCEPTUAL APPROACH – Teaches structure of banjo style so the student can begin to arrange their own tunes and learn by ear at an earlier stage.
DEMONSTRATION RECORDING – Songs and exercises played slow, then at performing speed.
Banjo and rhythm instruments on separate channels, so you can eliminate the banjo and play along with the band when ready.
Improves timing, improvisation skills, and prepares the student to play with others sooner.
