Other Benefits for members

Special tabs and videos available now free to members only
Dueling Banjos-Original movie soundtrack transcription as played by Eric Weisberg. I tabbed this out for a student a few months ago. It's kind of hard in places mostly because the style is a little unorthodox from typical Scruggs style. It's catchy though, it must be, look how popular the song is.
Take it Easy-banjo solo tab. I transcribed the solo by Bernie Leyden of the Eagles. It was difficult to do because the banjo is buried in the mix behind the drums, vocals and electric guitars, but a lot of pickers are curious about this one, and it seems to have been an inspiration for a lot of banjo players to take up the banjo.
Country Roads-free banjo tab and video lesson for members too.
Man of Constant Sorrow- Beginner Version in tab and with a streaming video of it played slow and faster.
New live Videos - Stairway to Heaven, Under the Double Eagle, Dixie Hoedown, Bluegrass Breakdown
