One to One Banjo Lessons in Singapore

In Singapore, you can find a few professional Banjo tutors who specialise in playing the Claw-hammer technique or Bluegrass technique of the Banjo. This is good news for students and adults who want to learn to play their favourable musical instrument - the Banjo. It is never too late to learn Banjo lessons and have Banjo tuition.

The Playing Techniques of Banjo

There are two ways to pick a banjo:-
You can pick up with the fingers like bluegrass pickers, or you can hit down at the strings with your fingernail or thumb. Down picking is known as claw-hammer, is the older of the two styles.
The Claw-hammer technique is the older style of playing banjo. It is the claw-like positioning of the hand, and the modern playing styles grew out of it. Claw-hammer involves striking the four main strings in a downward motion using the index or middle fingernail. Simultaneously, the shorter fifth drone string is played with the thumb using a lifting motion. Complex melodies can be played with the addition of techniques such as “drop thumb” and “double thumbing”.
While claw-hammer is largely aimed at creating driving rhythms, variations of the technique allow the player to sound single-string melodic notes, strum harmonic chords, and produce all sorts of percussive effects on the banjo’s head. A whole range of brushing and picking effects gives the banjo the ability to play a lead instrument role, rather than simply being an accompaniment to other instruments

The Bluegrass technique

The Bluegrass technique is playing styles that have been popularized by the banjo players:-
1). Keith style, named for Bill Keith emphasizes melodic figures.
2). Reno style is a three-finger technique with substantial single-string picking, that’s named for Don Reno.
3). Scruggs style, they are played using finger picks and all such styles feature rolls - repeated patterns of eighth notes that are played in eight-note patterns while the player’s left hand chords. By varying the rolls throughout a song, the banjo helps to create rhythms that work within the overriding beat to prevent bluegrass from sounding mechanistic.
4). The Bluegrass banjo has 5-strings. Every 5-string banjo is a Bluegrass banjo. You can learn Bluegrass on any playable 5-string. The difference between a Bluegrass banjo and a non-bluegrass 5-string has to do with construction more than anything.
5). In Bluegrass music, a banjo roll is an accompaniment pattern played by the banjo that uses a repeating eighth-note arpeggio – a broken chord that played in a rising or descending order that subdividing the beat.
