How To Practice Banjo DVD By Ross Nickerson

New product

Ross Nickerson of BanjoTeacher.com has come out with the newest in his ongoing series of top rated Banjo Instruction DVDs, How to Practice Banjo. What could be more practical and useful than to receive guidance on the one subject that will ultimately define your overall ability and success with learning this fun, but sometimes tricky instrument?

Ross takes you through one time saving tip after another and shows you innovative way he has helped students with for over 30 years. He covers many aspects of practicing banjo and demonstrates techniques that will show you how to achieve real results, simply and fast. There is so much to practice but with all of us having limited time this could be the best banjo instruction investment you could make. Learn how to split your practice time into separate areas of practice, left hand, right hand, exercises, how to work through difficult passages and get better results.


....I was looking for something to help me progress faster. So far I am thrilled with this product. So many hints on how to practice and things to concentrate on.

Some of the subjects you’ll learn how to do are:

  • Quickly memorize and retain a song learned from tablature
  • Work through difficult spots and develop muscle memory
  • Improve everything you’ve already learned
  • Pick faster and more accurately
  • Develop the ability you need in your fretting hand to relax when you play
  • Practice aspects of learning banjo separately and then bring it all together at a higher level
  • Improve slides, hammer-ons, pull-offs and bending the strings
  • Practice timing and develop rhythm
  • Learn the notes on the neck and exercises to develop more overall skill
  • Develop your ability to play without tab through chord progression practicing
  • Practicing accenting the melody notes so you can really hear the melody when you play

In one of the valuable practice banjo lessons on the DVD, Ross teaches you how to quickly learn a song from tablature so you can learn and retain it quickly, play by memory and pick the song without looking at tab.

Very helpful

As a Banjo beginer I was looking for something to help me progress faster. So far I am thrilled with this product. So many hints on how to practice and things to concentrate on. At 70 yrs old my brain takes longer to get to my fingers but this is the best help i have found.

how can I be so lucky

Thank you...how can I be so lucky?! And I can't tell you how much my playing has improved and keeps improving since I started Ross's lessons. I am playing with groups regularly (jams) and enjoying it immensely. Have even got to be lead banjo! People just can't believe I have been playing for less than a year. My wife actually asks me to play something for her now! Obviously I haven't lost my excitement or enthusiasm about learning the banjo! And I know it's corny, but I couldn't have made this much progress without a system of learning that fits my learning needs. You hit all the keys - text, video, sound, and reinforcement. I just add the time - lots of it - and the dedication to learn, practice, review and keep challenging myself. And the best part is the play along lessons/cds...they give me a great way to practice what I have learned from the lessons and how to play with the CORRECT timing.
