We’ve got two sweet solos for this one, with the tricks growing as it goes! This melody brings back the memories and the truth gets me through today.
Well that was alot different from what I was expecting! Very cool arrangement!
@BanjoBen, I absolutely loved what you did with this song!! It is one of my favorite hymns and I love the question and answer deal that you did there!!
I love all of the fingerstyle hymns that you teach. I particularly like the syncopation that you do on this one. that is a nice change from the traditional style.
Classy arrangement on a classy hymn!
My brother and sister heard this and siad, YOU HAVE TO LEARN THIS!! IT SOUNDS SO GOOD! So here i am. it’s harder than i thought it would be but very rewarding once you get it. Great job @BanjoBen
SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL GREAT GENIUS OF ROPES.
When I tried it, I was reminded of you, Neil, that you would do it in no time, or at least the first part. Yeah beautiful hymn, beautifully arranged, and I’m learning it in the style Ben taught it with using only T, 1 &2.
Thank y’all! It’s a lot of fun!
BanjoBen is the best! There’s power in the blood and let me tell ya, there’s power in that pickin’! Boy what I’d give to strum a string box like ol BanjoBen. Godspeed BanjoBen, may your fingers never grow weary
Well, I’ll have to give it a shot then! This version seems very doable though. Looking forward to posting new videos on the BB Clark Forum!!
Love the finger style hymns! Great job! Ben, I appreciate so much who you are and what you do.
can you pleas do a lesson on what a friend alternating thumb fingerstyale
Love the way this seems to tie in with the finger style basics series. Keep em comin! Finger style hymns are my fav.
This has to be my favorite Banjo Ben lesson to date. I can’t wait to learn this one.
Can someone please let me know what the ‘B’ in the tab indicates?
The one right on top of the arrows indicates a brush with your thumb on the frets that are numbered beside the arrows. Banjo Ben explains it in the lesson.
The more time I practice this the more I love it, very pretty. I spend at least an hour a day now on this one song. Your beginning banjo rolls that I’m also working on helps with this style too.
I think the problem I am having with smoothness has to do with my fret hand and which finger goes on which string. I am watching your hand closely and trying to copy your fingers moving efficiently to fret the correct note in time.
