Murphy Henry – More Advanced Earl
Salepage : Murphy Henry – More Advanced Earl
So, we were talking about Earl Scruggs earlier. (Pun intended!) Some of the greatest tunes Earl gave us were the ones that feature the use of special D-tuners, sometimes called Scruggs tuners or Keith tuners. Your family and friends will be open-mouthed as they watch you de-tune your banjo and re-tune it right in the middle of the song! (Don’t tell them about the special tuners. Unless they paid for them!) We will show you step-by-step how to use these amazing tuning pegs.
If you don’t have these special tuners (and you’re waiting for your birthday to roll around), we can still teach you how to play “Earl’s Breakdown” and “Randy Lynn Rag” without the tuners. “Reuben,” which is in D tuning, does not require special tuners. We’ll show you how to retune the banjo for this one. Again, these classics are not just for Scruggs devotees. They are for anyone who is looking for a greater adventure on the banjo. No Tab.
The Murphy Method is a way of teaching bluegrass music BY EAR. We use no tablature in our teaching because we believe tablature is a crutch that interferes with learning to play bluegrass. We explain each song note by note, so that it is easy and quick to learn. As you learn these tunes, you are also developing your ear, so that learning actually gets easier as you go along!
We hope you will soon be joining the thousands of Murphy Method students all over the world who are learning to play bluegrass the Murphy Method way. One reason our Method is so successful is that we work with you slowly, one step at a time. First you will be learning the easy songs, which will provide a solid foundation. Then you will move onto harder songs, which won’t seem so hard because you will have already learned the basics.
Many of our students tell us that the Murphy Method is the fastest, easiest, most enjoyable way to learn that they have ever tried. And the facts speak for themselves: our students are learning to play!
