Neil Griffin was born and still resides in Charlotte, North Carolina. Music has always been his prime interest, starting wtih clarinet instruction in the fifth grade and learning guitar on his own. He performed as a member of the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra at age 15 playing bass clarinet. He also began performing with area dance bands on saxophone, clarinet, and guitar.

He studied music at the Univeristy of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, playing First Chair Alto Sax as a freshman in the UNC Concert Band. Neil taught as Band Director at three county schools for several years and at the same time privately for Kidd-Frix Music Co. in their Charlotte accordion school. When the School was purchased by Music Inc. Neil went into management and retail music sales for them. At the same time, Neil played regularly with his own band for wedding receptions, office parties, etc., and gained valuable experience from playing summer theater for many well-known stars as well as being called on a regular basis to play banjo, guitar, and clarinet for traveling Broadway shows appearing in the area.

Neil was very active in the Charlotte Musicians Association and served as president for approximately 13 years as well as holding other executive offices.

Some of the first professional jobs Neil played were good old southern square dances, which at that time weren't as fancy as they are today but provided him with an appreciation for country and bluegrass music that was never forgotten. He enjoyed doin 5 radio shows and two TV shows per week at WBT and WBTV in Charlotte for over a year.

In the early 60's Neil was hired to manage Tillman Music Co. in Charlotte. There he helped in starting the Aria Pro II line of instruments. Neil and his brother Steve, who also writes for Mel Bay Publications, went into the music-school business tohether in the 70's and later expanded as a retail music store. During this period Neil met Mel Bay and began to write material for 5-string banjo which was pretty scarce at the time. He has thoroughly enjoyed writing and teaching.

Currently, Neil is a performing musician, band leader and co-owner of the Neil Griffin Studios of Music in Charlotte, North Carolina where his instructional books are field tested and proven effective with students of all ages. He has authored or co-authored several books for Mel Bay Publications on the subjects of 5-string banjo, rock guitar, and accordion.

THE AUTHOR
Neil Griffin is a performing musician and teacher with many years of experience. He is co-owner of Griffin Music Scene in Charlotte, North Carolina, where this method has been field-tested and proven with students of all ages. Neil is the author of Mel Bay Publications' Easiest Banjo Book, Anthology of 5-String Banjo Styles, The Complete Banjo Book, and several other publications from Mel Bay.

ABOUT PART ONE A WORD FROM THE AUTHOR
I have attempted to set forth a basic, "from-the-beginning" system of five-string banjo instruction in the G or bluegrass tuning for the use of both teachers and students. Through the use of this method, the student should expect to learn the following:

1. How to pick out tunes single-string style (one note at a time).
2. How to play chord accompaniment.
3. How to play solos in the full three-finger, bluegrass style that is so popular today.

All the songs and solos in Part One are written in two simple keys (Gand C). All the playing
is done in the basic position (the first few frets).
The student will learn to play rolls, slides, hammers, and pull-offs. Techniques such as choking, playing harmonics, and high solo playing up the neck are purposely omitted in Part One. These will be covered in Part Two, as I believe that a thorough knowledge and facility should be gained in the basic position before moving on.
All of the songs in the first part are written two ways - one simple version showing the single-note melody as well as the chord strums and words - one complete three-finger, bluegrass solo that matches. Ifyou have a friend who plays a few chords on the guitar, it will be fun to play the song together, swapping back and forth with one playing the melody and the other strumming the chords. Later, when you can handle full solos, the music will still work together.
Daily practice is essential in order to master the material in this method and is one thing you must discipline yourself to do. No one else can do it for you.
If you are not taking regular instruction from a banjo teacher or if there are no banjo teachers in your town and you feel you need extra help, any competent guitar teacher will understand the material in this book and willbe able to help you to understand the things that cause you trouble.
Good luck and, above all, have fun with your music!
Neil Griffin

 

PART TWO FOREWORD
Iwant to thank the many thousands of banjo enthusiasts who have purchased the Mel Bay books I have written. It is certainly gratifying to receive letters and phone calls from all over the world commenting on my books and requesting more advanced material for the fivestring banjo.
There is quite a bit of good music available now for the five-string banjo, but as I study all that I can obtain, my feeling remains the same as when I wrote my first book. There seems to be a lack of actual teaching material that systematically acquaints the aspiring banjo player with the techniques necessary to become an accomplished banjoist. A banjo player must utilize his or her own talents and imagination in playing exciting music. In order to achieve what your musical ear wants to hear, you must know just where to find the sounds that you are looking for on your instrument. I sincerely hope that this book will help those who use it correctly, not only just to play the songs as they are written here, but to learn your way around the banjo so well that you can extend the solos, improve upon them, and create your own versions.
Included in this part are information on chords and chord progressions, scales and keys, single-string picking, melodic or chromatic style, back-up, blues and boogie, various technical exercises, and standard tunes as well as some original material to help demonstrate their use. It is very important that you understand and can play the material in Part One of this method in order to get the most out of this volume. It would also be helpful if you would read through and play the supplementary material that I have written previously - Mel Bay's Easiest Banjo Book, Complete Banjo Book, and Anthology of 5-String Banjo Styles. Again, many thanks for your interest and support, and best wishes for many hours of 'Happy Pickin'

"MELODIC" OR "CHROMATIC" PICKING
THE NEXT FEW PAGES WILL INTRODUCE YOU TO THE "MELODIC" OR "CHROMATIC" STYLE OF BANJO PLAYING. THE MAJOR PART OF THE MATERIAL IS IN G BECAUSE YOU ARE SO FAMILIAR WITH THE KEY, BUT SEVERAL OTHER KEYS ARE SHOWN.
THIS STYLE IS SOMETIMES CALLED "FIDDLE SCALE PLAYING" BECAUSE IT IS DESIGNED TO ALLOW THE BANJO PLAYER TO PLAY RAPID RUNS AND FILL-INS AS WELL AS THE OLD-TIME FIDDLE AND MANDOLIN TUNES THAT HAVE SO MANY NOTES IN EACH MEASURE OF THE MUSIC. MOST OF THE OLD FIDDLE TUNES HAVE ABOUT EIGHT NOTES PER MEASURE AND DO NOT ADAPT WELL TO THE "SCRUGGS" STYLE.
MOST GOOD BANJO PLAYERS USE A MIXTURE OF THE TWO STYLES IN ORDER TO AVOID BEING MONOTONOUS.
IF YOU READ MUSIC AND HAVE A THOROUGH KNOWLEDGE OF THE MELODIC SCALE PATTERNS, YOU CAN READ FIDDLE AND MANDOLIN TUNES DIRECTLY FROM FIDDLE AND MANDOLIN MUSIC. THIS ABILITY ALONE WILL OPEN UP THE OPPORTUNITY TO PLAY LITERALLYTHOUSANDS OF TUNES YOU ARE NOT FAMILIAR WITH. YOU WILL NOTICE THAT IN THIS STYLE OF PLAYING THE RIGHT-HAND FINGERING REQUIRES YOU TO PICK THE SECOND STRING WITH THE MIDDLE FINGER. THIS TAKES SOME PRACTICE BUT WILL ENABLE YOU TO PLAY RUNS THAT WERE VERY DIFFICULT TO FINGER BEFORE.
BE PATIENT, AS YOU WILL PROBABLY FEEL LIKE AN AWKWARD BEGINNER FOR A WHILE. BUT DON'T GIVE UP - IT'S WORTH THE EFFORT .... MEMORIZE ONE SCALE PATTERN AT A TIME AND DON'T MOVE ON TO THE NEXT ONE UNTIL YOU CAN PLAY IT QUITE SMOOTHLY.
 

ADVANCED SOLO SONG SECTION
BE SURE TO READ THE NEXT FOUR PAGES ON "CHORD DIAGRAMS," "CIRCLED TAB NUMBERS," "THE CHOKE," AND "CHIMES" BEFORE YOU START PLAYING THE SOLOS. THIS INFORMATION WILL HELP YOU TO UNDERSTAND THE SOLOS MUCH BETTER.
INCLUDED IN THIS SECTION IS A WIDE VARIETY OF MATERIAL.
THERE ARE SEVERAL SONGS THAT YOU LEARNED IN PART ONE IN THE BASIC POSITION THAT ARE PRESENTED HERE IN THE HIGHER OCTAVE (UP THE NECK). THESE MAY BE CONNECTED TO THE PREVIOUS SOLOS YOU HAVE LEARNED TO EXPAND THE NUMBER OF CHORUSES YOU CAN PLAY.
MANY OF THE SONGS HAVE BOTH LOW AND HIGH VERSIONS WITH A MIXTURE OF "SCRUGGS" AND "MELODIC." THERE ARE SEVERAL ORIGINAL TUNES INCLUDED. IN SOME INSTANCES THE STYLE USES THE HOLDING OF COMPLETE CHORDS WHERE I OBVIOUSLY COULD HAVE MADE THE PlAYING MORE FLOWING AND OPEN TO SUIT MORE ADVANCED PlAYERS, BUT I DID NOT SET OUT TO WRITE JUST ANOTHER "SOLO BOOK. " IT IS MY HONEST HOPE THAT YOU WILL, THROUGH THE USE OF THIS BOOK, REALLY BEGIN TO SEE WHERE THINGS ARE COMING FROM THAT YOU DID NOT UNDERSTAND BEFORE. STUDYING THIS MATERIAL THOROUGHLY WILL ENABLE YOU TO READ AND UNDERSTAND SOLOS WRITTEN BY MUCH GREATER BANJO PLAYERS THAN MYSELF.

FOREWORD
This book takes you through step hy st('p instructions on working out song for the 5-string banjo ii'om basic melodies in Bluegrass-style and in Melodic/Chromatic tyle. Each section also contains exercises and examples for improvising.
The first section and the second section deal with working out the basic arrangement of
a song. The exercises involve replacing the x's around the melody with notes. The last section
in the book deals with refining the arrangement of a song using advanced technique. This
section includes examples of songs showing how entire measures or licks can be replaced
with licks fi'om a sheet of suggested alternate, advanced licks.
All of the steps to arranging a song for the banjo discussed in this book, are based on the
fact that banjo arrangements are actually combinations of specific patterns, (rolls, or licks),
which moe played according to the chords in the song. This method of arranging songs has
worked well with my banjo students, and Ihope it will work for you also. Happy Pickin'
Janet Davis

P.S. 1983: SPLITTING THE LICKS has now been
expanded to include over twice as much material as was
contained in the-first edition, which was published in
1977. This edition could easily serve as a supplement to
the earlier edition, for those who have that edition. The
following pages include many new licks and many
additional songs which demonstrate the process of
building an arrangement of a song to be played on the
banjo. Also, the instructional material has been expanded
to include answers to questions from people who
studied the first edition of the book.


ITRODUCTION
To playa song on the 5-string banjo, you actually play combinations of finger pattern (also
referred to as rolls or licks). To improviseo or arrange a song on the banjo, you must work the
melody into these finger patterns, according to the chords of the song.
Before attempting to arrange a song on your own, you should be able to play several
arrangements (from tablature) of songs in the style you will use, in order to familiarize yourself
with the rhythm, the finger patterns, and the overall feeling of playing in this style.
This book will deal with two very popular styles of picking the banjo with three fingers:
1.) Bluegrass-Style-where the melody is surrounded by background notes.
2.) Melodic-Style (Chromatic)-where each note picked is essentially a melody note.
These styles can be combined within one song, or one song can be played entirely in one of
these styles.
One noticeable difference between each style of playing is the rhythm ... where the accent
(melody) or stress falls.

Comparison of Accent of the Two Styles

BLUEGRASS-STYLE
1st 4th 7th

MELODIC/CHROMATIC
1st 3rd 5th 7th

Note: stress the notes indicated with arrows. Generally your melody notes are these notes.
In learning these styles, it is best to learn them one at a time, so that you will become
familiar with the finger patterns particular to that style.

To improvise generally implies arranging on the spur of the moment. One musical dictionary
defines "improvise" as - to arrange, however. For the purposes of this book, the terms
"improvise" and "arrange" will refer to the same things.

TABLATURE -- The tablature format used in this book is fairly standard:
t, i, m, r, p= Left hand fingering: t=thumb; i=index; m=middle; r=ring; p=pinky.
It means to repeat (play again) what has just been played. (Return
to the previous 1/: if there is one. Otherwise, return to the beginning
and repeat the section.)

The five lines represent the five strings; the top line is the first string, and
the bottom line is the 5th string, (the short string).
The number tells you which fret to push down with your left hand. (0 means
open- -don't push the string down with the left hand when picking it with the
right hand).

The rhythm used in this book is based upon standard notation. If you already
understand rhythmic notation, all of the music in this book can be counted in
4/4 time, with each eighth note ( ) receiving 1/2 count. Each X equals an eighth
rest, and also receives 1/2 count. (Each measure contains eight 1/2 counts.)

The following explanation is for those who do not already know how to play the
rhythm of the notes. (For the sake of simplicity, it is explained in ~ time,
with each eighth note equaling 1 count.)
Each measure consists of 8 counts.
The measures are divided by bar lines.

H, P, Sl, Ch = are left hand techniques used for sounding the strings with the left hand; (the
right hand picks the note preceding them). -- ---
H means to hammer the fret indicated, by pushing down the string with the
left finger, hard enough to sound the tone.
-Emeans to pull off of the string from the fret before the one to be sounded by
the pull off, therefore sounding the tone indicated above the P.
SL means to sound the tone by sliding to the fret number above the Sl with the
-left finger(s) from the number before it.
Ch means to bend the string with the left finger, (do not pick the string with
the right hand, just bend it). (Ch=choke)

The STEMS under the notes (or numbers) tell you how long to let each note
ring:

= 1 count. Each eighth note receives one count. Eighth notes are written alone,

= 2 counts. Hold the tone played for the duration of two tones.
= ½ count. Play two sixteenth notes in the same amount of time you play one
eighth note:

= 1 count. (An eighth) rest indicates silence for the indicated duration.
(Pause for one count.)
Repeat sign.

OR- means to stress or accent this tone ... play it louder.

x = pause, do not play, for that count. (An x is a rest.)

NOTE: For more complete explanations of the above indications, refer to a beginning
banjo book.

T, I, M = are fingering indications for the right hand. M means pick the string with the
middle finger;-l means index finger; T meansthumb.

"Up the neck" of the banjo involves playing between the 5th and the 22nd frets of the fingerboard. This book is intended to provide you with the basic principles and techniques for developing the ability to play any song in the three-finger style of playing in the up-the-neck area of the banjo. People often find it difficult to read the double-digit numbers involved in playing up the neck. However, just as it was difficult to read tablature for the first time, you will find that you will see the same numbers over and over, and you will begin to recognize the same patterns up the neck, just as you do when playing down the neck. Because these are related to chord positions, it will help to concentrate on°the numbers involved with playing each chord, particularly the G, C, and D chords from which the left hand will work. These will become familiar to you within a very short time, and will be easy to relate to the fingerboard. This book is divided into chapters, with each chapter building upon the information presented in the previous one. The songs presented in each section demonstrate the particular technique(s) discussed in that chapter. However, the songs are also intended as playable arrangements. The more you play up the neck using these techniques, the easier it will be to develop your own arrangements using these techniques. I have used these techniques for many years with my banjo students, and they seem to have worked well. I hope they will work well for you, also. Happy Pickin'! Janet Davis

The three-finger style of playing was popularized in the early 1940s primarily by Earl Scruggs and Don Reno, and has continued to be one of the foremost styles for playing the five-string banjo. In this style ofplaying, the melody notes for a song are surrounded by background notes, which are determined by the chords to the song. Patterns are involved in playing up the neck, just as they are involved with playing on the deeper tones of the banjo. Many of the same patterns (fo11sand licks) can be used in many different songs for the same chord. As you begin to work with these patterns in songs and learn how they are used, the fact that they are played in the up-the-neck area will begin to seem natura!. In fact, you should find it fairly easy to begin working out your own up-the-neck arrangements fairly early in the book. As this book progresses, you willlearn how to connect up-the-neck and down-the-neck licks smoothly, how to switch a lick for a lick for single chords, how to create variations, incorporate the melody, etc. The final sections of this book involve techniques developed by Bill Keith, Bela Fleck, Scott Vestal, and other influential banjo players of the 1990s. It is important to realize that the techniques which are used in the advanced sections are developed from the techniques covered in the earlier sections of the book. Therefore, it is important to understand the basics, first.

UP-THE-NECK ARRANGEMENTS
It will help to realize that up-the-neck arrangements are often played as second variations and, therefore, there is more freedom to deviate from the basic melody. (The first arrangement usually establishes the melody in the mind of the listener, so that he or she can appreciate the various techniques employed as the basic tune is expanded upon in subsequent variations.)
Up-the-neck arrangements are frequently of two basic types:
1. An arrangement with a strong sense of melody. This type of arrangement is generally based upon the standard roll patterns, where one finger of the right hand is used to pick the melody notes, while the other two right-hand fingers play background notes based upon the chords to the song. Licks are often used as fill, rather than as the basis for this type of arrangement. Songs which have words often fall within this category.
2. An arrangement which. deviates from the basic melody. This type of arrangement is comprised primarily of licks (patterns or motifs). Arrangements which are comprised primarily of licks can be absolutely void of the tune for the song and still work, as long as the licks are played for the correct chords to the song. Generally, these songs will have a specific motif which will serve as the identifying factor for a listener, such as the intro to "Bugle Call Rag." Breakdowns usually fall within this category.
The following chapters of this book will take you through the development of arrangements which fall within Type I and Type II, as well as arrangements which use a combination of these techniques.

Pete “Dr. Banjo” Wernick gets total novices to make good banjo music almost immediately. With only two chords, Pete has newcomers strumming and accompanying ten bluegrass standards. By learning a third easy chord, they are now able to play along with almost any bluegrass song. Next, it's time for the basic banjo rolls that really start sounding like bluegrass picking. This super-easy lesson has been time-tested at Pete's many workshops and music camps, and it works! Includes play-alongs with guest students.
