    Testimonials

    Listen to what HBD's students have to say.

    Rob B.

    Student

    “HBD is a great teacher! In this book, he really helped me understand music theory, which is something I've always wanted to learn. After reading this book, I feel like I know my banjo way more than I did before! I was playing for about 5 months before getting this book, so this book is a great stepping stone for beginners looking to improve!"

    Hunter H.

    Student

    "This book really took me to the next level in my banjo playing. I learned so many finger picking styles I never thought possible, and the amount of scales in this book will keep you busy for weeks and even months! This is a must-have book for anyone who just needs that little push to become the player they always wanted to."

    Jeremy R.

    Student

    "HBD is banjo gold. All of his books, videos, tabs, and instructions are the best. Has likely singlehandedly turned hundreds on to the banjo, and convinced hundreds of others to start playing again."

    Kristen C.

    Student

    “I wasted some money on two books prior to this, after buying this I was up and picking real music right away. These books were far superior to the ones I picked up at the music store. Plus you get the accompanying video. HBD clearly has a passion for banjo and we are the benefactors with such great learning material. These materials are a great value. Thank you HBD!”

    Matt B.

    Student

    “I've been taking private lessons for a couple months and in one night using this I swear I sound my best! Very easy to read tabs. The skill progression is spot on. Love the product, thanks Dude!"
