In this banjo lesson with Ryan Cavanaugh, Ryan teaches how to play fiddle tunes on the 5-string banjo using the single string technique.

He shows you in this lesson how using the D chord position shape you can easily play many fiddle tunes in the single string style. To play in another key, just simply move this shape up the neck to the appropriate key.

Like the concept of anchoring your left hand around the root. Nice lesson!

His comments are too broad to fast without a goal. It would be better to focus on one song and go slow. Sorry to hard to pickout his notes. This is not simple
