Learning the Melody

A great banjo solo has a lot of notes. A great banjo player will be able to accent the melody notes amongst the flurry of noise we hear. Bringing the melody to the forefront is a little challenging. First, we need to know what the melody notes are. That's where we are going to start for this lesson. Pay close attention. When we work on the song, these are the notes to accent. That means you play those notes slightly louder than the others. Check out the video and tab below.
