The Learning Overview for this beginner-friendly clawhammer banjo tablature of 'Mary Had a Little Lamb' presents learners the opportunity to discover and explore Clawhammer and Up the Neck Styles. This resource is tailored for novice players aspiring to master the art of banjo playing.
As a clawhammer beginner, it is beneficial to utilize the various features provided by the Tunefox platform to aid in your learning journey. A particularly prominent one is the Lick Switcher, which enables the addition of a new lick vocabulary. By making changes to licks for individual measures, multiple song variations open up to your exploration. You could even personalize the arrangement according to your preference, and along the process, discover new interpretations of the tune. Always remember - there's a variety of licks hidden in each measure, waiting to be discovered by you.
Another useful tool is the Arrange slider. This feature empowers you to modify the difficulty level tailored just for you. Slide to the left, it guides you through a simple, core arrangement shown in the tablature by eliminating most of the “fill-in” notes. Bring it to the right- the deleted notes return to form a complete, complex song arrangement. There's no either-or, finding your balance is the key.
The tempo slider is an excellent feature that allows you to alter the song's tempo. This control ensures that you can start at a slower, manageable pace and gradually increase your speed as you attain comfort and familiarity.
Experience the joy of playing music along with backing tracks. This not only amplifies the fun in learning, but pushes your ability to adapt to playing in a band like setting. With Tunefox's 'Speed Up' function and the backing tracks, you can choose snippets of the song, gradually increase the tempo and earnestly master them. Every time you play the song, the tempo will slightly increase, assisting you to reach higher speeds progressively.
By following these simple tips, the learning process will not only become smoother but also much more enjoyable. So, what are you waiting for? Grab your banjo, dive into this learning experience and get ready for your next jam!
Mary Had a Little Lamb lyrics
Mary had a little lamb,
whose fleece was white as snow.
And everywhere that Mary went,
the lamb was sure to go.
It followed her to school one day
which was against the rules.
It made the children laugh and play,
to see a lamb at school.
And so the teacher turned it out,
but still it lingered near,
And waited patiently about,
till Mary did appear.
“Why does the lamb love Mary so?”
the eager children cry.
“Why, Mary loves the lamb, you know.”
the teacher did reply
