Oooh, got an A+ on the exam. Well, with the metronome below 130. :innocent:

Does anyone have any suggested lessons or songs from the Banjo Ben Clark website to keep practicing what we have learned with the alternating thumb finger style lessons?

Great question, and I’d say right now that you have the major skills needed to tackle most any of them though they will be difficult. They will include techniques and tricks in them that we haven’t covered in the course up to this point. As the course continues I will teach these techniques explicitly. I honestly do not have any super simple fingerstyle songs on the site right now. I do have “Jesus Loves Me” but it’s not quite the same style: https://banjobenclark.com/lessons/jesus-loves-me-fingerstyle-guitar-beginner

I do love that arrangement and it’s so fun to play!

Try your hand at “I’ll Fy Away”. I had to remove it as a lesson on the site due to copyright but I’ll include it here:

Thank you very much for the recommendation. I really enjoyed the alternating thumb finger-style course. I imagine it was quite a bit of work coming up with the exercises, I found that the exercises were quite useful.

Good, I hope so! I work hard on the process/exercises. I don’t have any minutes to spare in my schedule, so I don’t aim to waste anyone else’s time either.
