Hey guys,

Pretty new banjo player here from Ontario Canada. Just asking around for recommendations on good online courses designed for clawhammer and old-time music. I am coming from a lengthy guitar background and have picked the banjo up quicker than I expected, so it doesnt need to be for absolute beginners.

Thanks for the help everyone have a great week :)

Here is one place to get started....8 Essential Steps  You may be beyond this, but it is a place to start and there is much more to explore.   Others will likely chime in an suggest sites that worked for them.  Welcome to the Hangout.

Thanks for that. I have seen these videos and found them to be a great help. Can't get enough of the banjo at the moment and just want to put my money in a good place :)

Not really an online course, but I have a playlist on my YouTube channel called “Clawhammer Tunes with Tabs”. Currently there are 69 videos. Each is of me playing a tune/song and each has an associated free tab and a link to the tab which is stored here on the BHO. The repertoire is generically old time, including fiddle tunes, waltzes, songs etc. Hope you can get some use from this playlist.

I've found Brad Kolodner's Clawhammer Corner on True Fire to be a wonderful resource.

What level of membership did you get? Sounds like you gained a lot from his course.

I started with the basic level (access to most of the materials on the site) and after a few months upgraded to the monthly asynchronous video lesson level which has been great.
