Note (3/7/15):
Earlier this year, a publisher in India decided to begin printing bootleg copies of The How and the Tao of Old Time Banjo. Thankfully, a lot of people spoke out and the bootleg was taken off Amazon. The trouble is, I have no way of preventing this from happening again. As a precautionary measure I have closed my account. This move has taken a lot of our old workshops offline, but we still have the master files. as time allows we will rebuild the online offerings.

My father and I have been teaching folk music on the Internet since the late 1990’s. Some of the material has been lost over the years because we never thought that anybody would want to see or hear what we were doing in 1998.

We were so much older then, we’re younger than that now.

Anyway, here is a collection of our old books, essays, podcasts and videos that have managed to stay online over the years.

One thought on “How-To

  1. Pat,

    Where can I get info/instructions as to how to adjust the string action on a Recording King OT-25 using the lower coordinator rod? The guys at RK have not been very helpful in this matter. Thanks very much.

    P.S. Love your work on YouTube – UR a great and humanistic teacher.
