The bluegrass melodic style is a beautiful three finger picking style which can be traced to the early 1900's. It became a fully accepted style for playing the five-string Banjo in the 1960's, and is today an integral part of the three-finger style of many Banjo players at all playing levels.
Songs arranged in the bluegrass melodic style are easy and fun to learn.
