Welcome To LittleRockBanjo.com

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.
