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.

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 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)
