Crawdad Song - Melody

  • Melody
  • Key   G
  • Tempo   60 bpm
  • Tuning   gDGBD

Listen on:

If this one feels tough, slow it down or use the difficulty slider. You could play this whole melody with your thumb, and it will be a great workout whether you are a beginner or experienced player. Getting consistent tone and timing when playing the same string with the same finger multiple times in a row and in quick succession is a good little challenge. We have suggested fingerings that will help you practice with "home position" for Scruggs style banjo. Middle finger gets first string, Index gets second and Thumb gets 3rd, 4th and 5th string. Some of the licks also show you how to take a single string approach with your pick hand.

Make listening a part of practice with Tunefox. If you can say or sing the words as you play it will help your memory and timing.
