These Intermediate to Advanced Banjo lessons will introduce you to the concept of creating lead breaks. We’ll start at the foundation with scales and simple licks. As we advance, we’ll pick up the tempo, move around the neck, and start soloing in the Scruggs or melodic style.

Powerful Up the Neck Lick by Geoff Hohwald will teach you about playing above the 14th fret of the banjo neck. The resulting sound is very explosive and really catches the listener’s attention. Geoff will show you how to play the lick in detail at multiple speeds and with a jam track of Train 45. Once you get the lick down, try working it into other songs like Lonesome Road Blues, Foggy Mountain Breakdown, and Sittin’ on Top of the World.
