The Brainjo Jam for Discovering & Learning New Tunes
Hey folks! I wanted to share with you a new resource for listening to and learning new clawhammer banjo tunes.
Over the years, several folks have asked for a convenient way to listen to tunes from the YouTube Clawhammer Tune and Song of the Week series on the go (i.e. while away from the computer), and I've wanted it as well.
Enter the Clawhammer Banjo Jam podcast!
Each episode consists of a new clawhammer banjo tune. For those in the Breakthrough Banjo course (or learning tunes from the Tune of the Week series), it will serve as a way of choosing and familiarizing yourself with songs in The Vault (click here for the current list of songs and tunes in the vault)
The advantage of this format is that you can subscribe to it wherever you stream music (iTunes, Spotify), or in any podcast app, so you'll be able to listen to it on your smartphone. And it'll automatically update whenever new tunes are added.
These tracks are also being used as part of the Breakthrough Banjo Jam Player v2.0. Click here to check out the tracks for the Clawhammer Banjo “Top 10.”
I've linked the introductory episode at the top which also explains the mission of the podcast.

I'll also use this thread to announce new tunes as they're released as a reminder.
UPDATE January 2021 - The Clawhammer Banjo Jam is now "The Brainjo Jam" podcast.
In addition to containing clawhammer banjo songs, the podcast will also contain fingerstyle banjo hits (all styles) plus episodes on the science of learning and neuroplasticity.
