Author Kelly Weeks is a firm believer that learning to play music should involve playing along with music recordings. Playing with a beat is a student's best method of practice. It teaches the student how to play steady time as well as prepares them for playing with other musicians. Kelly plays both the clawhammer and the three finger style but he has found much greater success teaching the clawhammer style.
This is not a comprehensive method for learning the banjo. It is a method to help you learn to play the basic banjo techniques with musical recordings
