••••• "It is truly and excellent learning tool... way easier to follow than a book. All types of learning (visual, audible, hands-on) are encouraged with this fantastic resource."

••••• "Awesome! I have NEVER learned something so demanding so fast with such an enjoyment!"

••••• "Great App for beginning banjo players! Easy to follow, well formatted. It's a nice portable version of an intro book."

With this handy scrolling tab app You can easily learn basic chords, rolls, songs to sing and a few shiny but not-hard-to-play arrangements of pieces like "Tom's Breakdown", "Bill Cheatham", "I Saw the Light" or "Bile'm Cabbage Down". Every new element you learn will be put into practice immediately, and a nice acoustic guitar track backs you up in every exercise and piece.

If you don't want to spend money on your first "entry level" instrument, here's what to do: Turn your guitar into a "practice banjo"!

All you need to do is to remove the E6 string, and then substitute the A string with a high E (E1st) string and tune it up to the high g note (like E1st string at the 3rd fret). Then you tune your original E1st string down a whole note d, then you can play your guitar like a five string banjo. (g, D, G, b,d)
