Great app very useful!


I found this application to be extremely useful and easy to maneuver around in ads great value to my practice time and does not take away with any sort of an necessary complication highly recommend this application to anyone learning Banjo

And now it's even better with all the additional links to keep me busy learning the banjo thumbs-up great job on this one!

Good but not for beginners


There’s no “sort by difficulty”. I’m just starting out and was hoping to quickly find some licks to ramp me up in other directions but I have to watch/view each one to get a sense of its difficulty. This app is really good, I think I’ll be using it more as I get better. For now it’ll sit on the back burner.



Great inspiration to continue to learn and grow. It's easy to settle into your own licks, especially when you play a lot. This is an evolution for learning banjo, and a great way to stay fresh as a player. Thanks..
