What our members are saying...

I think DBL is awesome! The concept is great for someone like me who takes small breaks at work to play a little.

I like learning licks in the context of a tune and I like how you sometimes use the lick in two tunes or put the lick in two places in the same song.

That helps me internalize it more as a piece of vocabulary that I can use when I'm at the local jam.

I also like the categories. It's a kick-butt idea and website!

I found DBL on Instagram and love the fact that each lick is a small bite. It helps me understand what is being done without getting overwhelmed.

I was having difficulty finding these licks a 2nd or 3rd time on social media platforms so I could revisit and practice on them. Having all of these licks in one place has high value for me.

The real deal maker is the simplicity of the site. NO circuitous hunting around!!! Great Stuff.

Daily Banjo Licks has to be one of the most intuitive and perfect ways to improve and sharpen up banjo playing skills.

Instead of spending hours chasing down songs, Youtube performances and searching for possible tab for a specific lick, BAM- I get an email with a short tab and suggestions of how & where to use. I can use the licks in whatever songs I choose and whatever speed.

I’m so excited to actually have an idea of how to play Rocky Top. The content is so clean and focused on learning by ear/watching as opposed to only relying on tab.

The “Learn Songs” section with melody and increasing levels of complexity is such a nice way to get a song that I’ve never attempted under my fingers.

Scott S.

Every day I look forward to what you come up with :-).

Zbynek R.

Really enjoying Daily Banjo Licks and I look forward to each day’s new lick!  I’m a longtime woodwind player and a relative newcomer to the banjo (only 1 yr), so the advanced licks tend to be pretty tough for me, but I always download the tab for future reference.

Keep up the good work.
