Present services, upcoming plans and goals for Banjo My vision for Banjo is to have a huge resource for banjo students to draw from. Right now I offer quite a few books I've written, along with Videos, DVDs, CDs, and many different Online Lessons you can download from the Internet with many more works in progress. I'm carrying some other well-respected materials and accessories and we are expanding all the time. Banjo offers some free tabs, sound bytes, instruction, learning tips, along with a members site that features many streaming video and tablature arrangements that are free to download. I'll try to keep up to date information on the latest learning methods and unique accessories that may help you in your quest to learn and improve on the banjo. I will be doing lots of work on the site in the upcoming weeks, months and years. Please check back frequently and watch as we grow.
