Beginning Tenor Banjo Lessons | Careless Love

by David Bandrowski

In this tenor banjo lesson we will take on learning a song. We're going to learn how to play Careless Love. Careless Love is a traditional jazz/blues tune that has been recorded by many people. Bessie Smith had a very popular version of this song in 1925. It has been recorded many times since. Even 5 string banjo master Earl Scruggs recorded a version. 

One of the things that make this fairly easy to play a chord melody version of this song on the tenor banjo is that most of the melody notes fall on chord tones. I'll guide you through the melody and the chords for this tune. Watch the video and feel free to ask any questions in the comments below.
