When you boil it all down, understanding and executing proper timing on the banjo is the foundation of everything you play. Perhaps if you played the fiddle you might be able to get by playing a melody slightly loose on the timing of where the melody notes should be placed, but, on the banjo where we have no ability to sustain a note, just like a drum, producing a proper rhythm to weave the melody in to is critical. One of the challenges banjo students face is playing primarily in 4/4 time with three fingers. This leads to all kinds of potential misunderstandings where the beat is. Let me help you to create your own internal metronome and move you further past this hurdle once and for all. Yes you can learn rhythm and timing. Saying I was born without rhythm is the biggest excuse in the world and frankly is no excuse. Everyone learns it! I'm here to teach it.
