Ben, I gotta tell ya… I’ve been playing banjo for 2 years from different learning websites- but nothiong compares to yours.I started over as a beginner, with you, and am having a BLAST. I know worried man blues is a simple song… but you make it challenging and FUN. I also know I must be learning something- cause it actually is starting to sound like I know what I’m doing! Thanks

Chuck, that is so great to hear! I really appreciate your kind words! Keep me posted on your progress.

This is a real interesting lesson. I struggled greatly trying to forget the other version of this song to learn the other. I just kept running them together. In all honesty I was enjoying the tunes f the version from the forward reverse roll lesson with this song. SO i reviewed the two versions and figured out how to incorporate the hammerons and even a slide into the first version. I am missing exercising the square roll but really got a lot of satisfaction out of building the song I knew into a more complex version.

Any thoughts on this being a good or bad approach to learning the hammerons this way? I dont want to compromise the learning path just got creative to my approach on this one.

I think your approach is wonderful! You’re learning how to integrate the components yourself, which is what I’m trying to help you see!
