Learn how to play banjo with award-winning banjo player and teacher Tony Trischka. Part 2 helps you achieve a more professional sound, play with increased speed and mastery, and incorporate hammer-ons and pull-offs into your practice.
(fast bluegrass music) - Well, this is course two and here, we're gonna be learning how to get more of a professional kind of sound where you're getting all the notes really clear. Every single note really strong and clear and plus learning some extra techniques, such as pull-off's and hammer-on's. Pull-off's being where you hit a note and then you pull off to a lower note without actually picking the string.
Or hammer on's where you hit a note and then go to a higher note without actually taking your hands away. And I have some tunes here that explain how to do that, puts them in context and just adding some repertoire to the tunes you already know. So, this is course two.
