Ben, you nailed it with the "curriculum" idea! I'm so excited to see it. I started using some of the Dummies book to get that lesson flow but now I will be able to get it all from the greatest banjo website of all time. Thanks for caring about and listening to your students! May God continue to bless your work.

Thanks for sharing your "Parlor". Great information on your recording equipment. I'm on a Banjo Ben Break to practice my last Gold Pick Session and will be back. Love to see all your instruments too! Just ordered a new Huber Kalamazoo... I mentioned your name... Steve's happy response: "Good 'ol Banjo Ben" Love the idea of a curriculum.

Thank you so much Ben for all your hard work. I am very excited about all the new features you are adding to your site. We have been members for quite awhile now and my husband and I both enjoy your lessons. He plays banjo and I play guitar. Thanks again. Big Hugs, Linda P.S I really enjoyed this video.

Looking Forward to the new plans. Sounds great. I hope the guitar site works more with pick direction on the tabs. I am never sure even after watching a lot of the instruction. I know all the songs and chords and don't have any real problems except for knowing if I need to play an up-stroke or down-stroke. Thanks, Larry C.

Awesome Ben, thanks for the inside look. Have some problems but can't wait to get back on board. Little over 70, enjoyed and learned more from you than ever thought possible. Thanks and God bless you, Ross

Hey Ben, Just watched the vid above. Awesome! I am glad for ya my friend. Ben as a Christian, (and as a fellow Christian you will understand this), it is a blessing to see someone else so blessed. And you are that, my friend. And I am truly glad for you. Bob in WV

I always wondered why such a great instructor had such a terrible website. I believe great things will happen for you and your students with this overhaul. Thank you for being there.

So glad to see the great new updates coming! When do you expect a roll-out of the new site? My mandolin is aching to learn!

So, excited about the new website - Always hear from great folks on what and how to learn the mandolin. So, it's been like eating soup with a fork....not real successful. Stayed busy learning songs but, nothing else. Now you are giving a starting point and path to success. Thanks! I just Love this site......pick on Bro!

I love the curriculum idea. Even without a curriculum, my playing has improved greatly just going through some of the arrangements on the site that I like. After working through these, I find I can play other things better than I could have prior to doing the Banjo Ben lessons.

Re: Update from the Pickin' Parlor! April 7! #
Really, really looking forward to the banjo info. I'm having similar issues with what do I focus on and what should I be doing next. But, on the other hand, I've gotten really good at playing "Taps"!

They say you can't teach an old dog new tricks. Well just for the record this old dog turns Seventy in August and I am getting way too excited about Banjo Ben's new website coming online. Heck I sit up half the night wondering will this be the new dawn to learning a bag full of new tricks. Banjo Ben Does it Again!

I'm thrilled about the new site! Also, I've been thinking about TRYING to learn the fiddle, so perhaps IF your new site is going to touch on that a little bit, then that might be what makes me go ahead with this new instrument.

Re: Update from the Pickin' Parlor! April 7! #
Hi Ben! I've used the site on and off for the last year to try and learn mandolin. It was a little confusing not knowing where to start or what direction to go next. Looking forward to the new site! As others have already said the curriculum idea sounds great!
