Welcome!

My name is Bill Nesbitt and I play and teach banjo in

the central Little Rock area. I've played banjo since I

was in high school in the mid-70's. I teach 5-string,

Scruggs-based bluegrass style banjo. On

this site you will find banjo instructional

videos, tablature for several popular banjo

tunes, plus other tools and advice to help the

beginner as well as the more experienced picker.

I teach bluegrass banjo lessons in my home studio right

here in Little Rock. I've taught retirees, waitresses, grade

schoolers and college kids, doctors and lawyers... they

all learned differently, but they all shared one thing in

common: the same love for and fascination with the

five-string bluegrass banjo that I've had ever since I

could remember.

I start with the basics. Is the banjo at least semi-

decent to begin with? (Too many aren't.) Is it set up

properly? Do you have picks and know how to wear them

properly? (Don't be ashamed, it's really counter-intuitive.)

Then it's on to open string rolls, a few basic chords and licks,

and everybody’s starting-off tune, Cripple Creek! Still one of

my all-time favorites. You'd think I'd be sick of that song by

now, but I love it.
