Gina Furtado: A Little Something For Everyone

Gina Furtado, banjo player with Chris Jones and the Night Drivers, cut her banjo teeth taking lessons from Murphy. Now she slides into the instructor's chair to share some of her distinctive style with you. These intermediate to advanced arrangements of Angelina Baker, Big Sciota and Cold Frosty Morning (which are all popular fiddle tunes), Edelweiss, and Last Frost (an original tune) will stretch your banjo knowledge. They incorporate melodics as well as some single-string work. Watch a clip and order it here.

Key of C & Beyond DVD cover

Half-Price DVD of the Month:
Key Of C & Beyond

There are a couple different ways to play in the key of C on the banjo. You can capo to the fifth fret (which takes some time and tuning adjustment). You can retune entirely, which is impractical on all levels. Or you can stay in standard tuning, no capo, and play out of C position. That is the easiest, quickest way to do it and on this video we show you how to get started. On sale this month for $14.98 Watch a clip and order it here.

Which DVD Comes Next?

We've recently updated our recommended song order for all levels of our DVDs. Because our method and material were developed over many years, we've found better ways to teach now than just plowing straight through each DVD. Take a minute to look over our ideal order for learning at every level. These are for the original releases of the DVDs. If you have NEW Beginning Banjo 1, 2, and 3 just go straight through, and don't stray from the path!
