This lesson will teach you how to play a beginning arrangement for the song Train 45. This arrangement contains lots of repetition which will help you to memorize it easily and start playing quickly with others. Geoff will show you how to play the break in detail and cover techniques like hammer-ons. After practicing the break at several speeds, we will then play it along with a rhythm track to work on timing. Watch the video to see the tab for the lesson.
The first four measures of Train 45 can be used to play Foggy Mountain Breakdown and will give you a head start should you wish to learn that song later. To learn even more beginner songs, check out our Easy Banjo Breaks 1 lesson package.
