Clawhammer Banjo in 8 Essential Steps - A Video Series


Bonus Installment 2: The Brainjo Tune Learnin' System

by Josh Turknett,


The final "8 Steps to Clawhammer Banjo" ebook is now complete, a 40 page guide containing all the materials from the videos, including the tabs for all the tunes and exercises. 

Sign up here to get it. 


As promised in the last bonus installment, this time around I'm giving you the step-by-step, battle-tested and foolproof Brainjo system for learning new tunes.

Now, why would you need a system for learning new tunes, you ask?

Because it helps you avoid a lot of pitfalls that commonly plague folks as they start adding their first tunes to their repertoire. More specifically, following the system I cover here will allow you to do things like:

  • Memorize tunes more easily.
  • Develop rock solid rhythm and timing (and avoided the dreaded "closet picker's syndrome").
  • Learn the skill of playing with other musicians.
  • Develop other aspects of musicianship that will ultimately serve as the foundation for doing things like playing by ear, learning tunes "on the fly", and improvising.

After reviewing the tune learnin' system, I'll then give you the video backup jam tracks for the tune we learned last week, "Long Journey Home", so you can put the system to work.

And, also as promised, in part 2 of the lesson I'll walk you through an arrangement of another great song: "Will the Circle Be Unbroken".

So click on the video and let's get started!
