I have worked out these solos for anyone to use as a practice tool in order to gain experience playing all over their banjos fretboard. The chords used are picked by me and are not written in stone! If you feel that one or more chords should be changed to make the solo sound better to you, please do so! Transposing into a different Key may also sound better to you? Also sometimes playing single notes would suit you better. Please try that also! You can find Plectrum banjo scales here. Also I recommend Chord Wizard software.

All of these solos were made using Musicease software. I think it is the easiest music notation software to use for Plectrum Banjo solos. I recommend it! Also, I recommend buying solos from the people listed here. Or, if you want to do-it-yourself, buy sheet music and fake books for the type of music you like and make your own arrangements like I do.
