illiterate in playing it. if there is any thing you can do to help me with

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.

the tuner on the side. Is that a different style?

Author Tammyleeloveshim (5 years)

Author Robbie Shook (2 years)
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.

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

Author stringplayer07 (7 years)
Hey cqccasey, if i am correct that is a five string with the 5th tuner on
the headstock. A 6 string plays like a guitar. I hpe i helped.

passion for bluegrass.. bluegrass and gospel style is the the first typed
music i started learning on guitar, and im self taught.. im wanting to do
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 (6 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 (6 years)
as far as the range of skill for the viewers, i would just go for a good
mix of levels.

Author Banjo Ben Clark (2 years)
Haha! Thanks, man! Yep, the exact tab to this version is on the site, as
well as over 150 other tabs! Thanks!

advanced version of I'll fly away. Thanks

Author BreathDoctor (6 years)
What brand is that Banjo? For the life of me, I CANT see the fifth string
tuner...unless its a 4 stringer. Doesnt sound like a 4 stringer, though.

Author Tazmania33quick (4 years)
I'm just a beginner and it would be really helpful if you could slowly show
whats goin on with both hands,perferably a split screen.

Author sccoonhunter (4 years)
I really enjoy these good gospel banjo tunes. I like the one you did on
Life's Railway to Heaven and this arrangment of I'll Fly Away is great. I
got the tabs for these on richards and southern and they are great. Keep it
up Ben. And i was wondering if you might try to work up an arrangment of I
Feel Like Travelling On and Just a Little Talk With Jesus. I'm interested
in these songs and would be sure to get the tabs for these. Thanks for the
great songs.
