Sometimes life steps in and forces you to do a workshop with less typing.
Today we revisit one of my most popular workshop subjects: frailing bluegrass tunes.

A quick look at the riff I play at the beginning of every workshop. No tab. I want you to work this out on your own. Experiment with it!

The new gear has arrived, and now I am waiting for the stuff I forgot to include in the original order.
I am making use of the downtime learning to use the new equipment and getting back to writing.
Yesterday a request came in for a frailing banjo workshop on The Grateful Dead’s Ripple. It works better on the banjo than I expected. I love it when a song surprises me like that.
Videos will be rolling soon. I can’t wait to show you what we have been working on. We have some really cool stuff in the works!
My video camera went feet up.
We have new equipment on the way, but in the meantime I will be taking full advantage of the unwanted free time to focus on writing my book.
The Daily Frail will be back better than ever. Soon.
Today for The Daily Frail we have an exercise that blends the basic frailing strum, rests, harmonics and a major scale run.
We also run through the string band classic, Gypsy Girl and by request we take a quick look at The Ballad Of Jed Clampett.
Tab for today’s main exercise is available in graphic, PDF and braille-friendly formats for our Patreon sponsors: https://www.patreon.com/posts/21655532
