Beginning Tenor Banjo Lessons | How To Play Winnin' Boy Blues

by David Bandrowski

Learn I'll show you how to play Jelly Roll Morton's tune Winnin' Boy Blues on the tenor banjo. I will lead you through the chords, melody, and then put those two together to create a chord melody. We will be playing this in the key of C, as this is the most friendly key on the tenor banjo when tuned in standard tenor tuning (C,G,D,A).

David is playing a custom Deering Sierra 19-fret tenor banjo.
