Don't Take My Word For It.
Here's What Actual Students Are Saying:

"This course 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 for anyone who just needs that little push to become the player they always wanted to." 



"HBD's Barn-Burnin' workout has been my favorite set of exercises to practice as I try to improve my banjo abilities. The various rolls, scale progressions, and other techniques have been the biggest reason of me being able to increase my skills as a simple pluckin' banjo player. Pairing it with the other beginner books makes it even easier to practice."



"This course really helps break the barrier most banjo players face. I'll be honest, I didn't expect it... I generally think HBD is heavily focused on popular music versus bluegrass, but this course proves otherwise."




Here's a Breakdown of What You'll Play In 
HBD's Barn-Burnin' Banjo Workout:


     Round 1: Keep Rollin' Rollin' Rollin'

  • Begin your workout by tackling the internet's most extensive set of roll patterns, from foundational rolls to seamlessly integrated hybrid rolls. Each pattern not only enhances your playing but also sharpens your muscle memory and picking awareness. Take your skills to the next level with advanced rolls like the Double D roll and Béla Fleck's Arpeggio roll, creating a picking hand that's flexible, fluid, and ready to tackle any tab.

     Round 2: Single String Slingin' 

  • Refine your precision and control with single string picking, a technique pioneered by banjo legend Don Reno and perfected by the legendary Béla Fleck. Explore a variety of single-string exercises, challenging your ability to seamlessly cross each string with a steady hand. Then tackle exercises using triplets, challenging both your rhythmic abilities and picking technique. These exercises not only enhance your technical ability but also enhance your creativity, enabling you to create solo licks reminiscent of banjo pioneers.

     Round 3: Scaling Mount Killiman-Banjo

  • Break free from the confines of G major and voyage through a vast landscape of these unique scale patterns. Begin with familiar open string scales like G major, C major, and D major. Then, master the five closed position scale patterns to gain a complete understanding of every playable note across the neck. Finally, explore exotic scales such as harmonic minor, diminished, and whole-tone, pushing the boundaries of both your ears and your playing ability.

     Round 4: Interval Space Travel

  • Think you've mastered your scales? Think again. Delve into the intricacies of scales played in thirds, fourths, fifths, sixths, and sevenths—each demanding different fingerings and challenging your accuracy. Playing thirds involves navigating between scale notes the third note above it, revealing unique harmonic relationships within the scale. Fourth and fifth intervals extend the melodic range, sixths add depth, and sevenths introduces tension and resolution. These exercises not only refine your technique but also enrich your ear, essential for mastery in G major.

     Round 5: Scruggs Style Skills

  • Honor the legacy of Earl Scruggs, the most influential banjo player of all time, and integrate his style into your own playing. Explore every iconic Scruggs-style lick, including phrases from classics such as 'Cripple Creek' and 'Foggy Mountain Breakdown'. This round will teach you how to seamlessly integrate these licks with ease, moving beyond simply memorizing tabs to truly mastering their musical potential. Whether you're refining your skills in home practice sessions or showcasing them in stage jam sessions, these timeless licks will significantly enhance your skill level. 

    Round 6: Mellow Melodic Licks

  • Advance your technique even further with Round 6, starting with the fundamental G major scale played in the banjo’s melodic style. This method is known for allowing strings to resonate continuously, producing a smooth, flowing sound that showcases the unique tuning of the banjo. Explore a diverse range of licks that build upon this scale, each increasing in complexity and intricacy. Perfect for players looking to broaden their musicality and explore the full potential of the banjo.

    Round 7: Chordal Cool-Down

  • This round serves as the perfect cooldown for your workout, transitioning through an array of chords designed to relax your fretting hand. Begin by winding down with the varied triads in the key of G major. Then, stretch your hands with suspended and 7th chords, adding new textures to your chord repertoire. Offering both a soothing cool-down and a chance to explore new sounds, this round is perfect for musicians looking to enhance their chord transitions and expand their musical vocabulary.

"I've been playing banjo for about 5 years now and have a pretty good grasp on writing accompanying banjo parts for original tunes; but in the beginning I blew over most of the scales and advanced/hybrid rolls which really (in my opinion) round out some great banjo picking. I've only had the course for a short period but its already proven to be a useful tool in greatly expanding my knowledge and abilities."


"All of his courses, videos, tabs, and instructions are the best. He has likely singlehandedly turned hundreds on to the banjo, and convinced hundreds of others to start playing again."
