    Has anyone learned how to play tenor 4-string banjo on their own (essentially without any help. My dad can play a bit, but I flipped the strings to play leftie). Any advice or online resources?
    Also, BTW, I have experience reading music and playing other string instruments. I'm looking for something specific to banjo. Thanks

    Hi there!

    I've been learning a 5 string banjo for about 4-5 months now, and I can definitely say the most useful resource for me has been YouTube!
    You can literally type anything banjo-y into it and find loads of helpful videos

    Most banjo 'music' is written in tabs, similar to guitar (I'm sure you'll be familiar with that..) A quick Google should provide you with a vast number of songs to get you going!

    Hope this has helped (a bit?)


    P.S If you need any help, message me and i'll be happy to help a fellow banjoer!
