illiterate in playing it. if there is any thing you can do to help me with
my problem , please reply . If not its ok . I cant find anyone who will

Author Denise Pryce (4 years)
Relax, Ben..... you're not alone. 7:47...... I have what I call "Millsitis"
where I play my hammer-ons with my index and ring finger on the third
string almost like the way Jim Mills does it. It's what I've gotten used to
and we're all differerent, but you're right, everyone should start off on
the right foot.

Thanks Ben! I would just like to add that Ben's site is awesome and well
worth 5 bucks a month. There's a wealth of information on there and there's
always someone to lend a helping hand if you need it. I'm only about three
months into my banjo career but with sites like Ben's, I know that I will
be playing it for years.

Author hidewoodkid (5 years)
Shazam! Is that a six string banjer with five tuners? Please, stop the
insanity Ben and get a fake tuner mounted on the fifth fret. Thank your videos...

would be very interested in an advanced version of this. Great post!

to the same on banjo, im looking for a tutorial with tabs or close up on
frets.. ive had this banjo since christmas and havent been able to learn
much cus i havent been able to find what im looking for yet.

Author Banjo Ben Clark (5 years)
It's a custom job out of East Texas called a Phantom built by Mitch Key.
The 5th string is tunneled through the neck like the Scott Vestal Stealth
banjos....if you count the tuners on the headstock, you'll count 5! Thanks
for watching!

Author flatpikinguitar (5 years)
as far as the range of skill for the viewers, i would just go for a good
