Bennett is excellent. I took some skype lessons from him before I messed up my right wrist. good picker and teacher.

Love me some ragtime banjo and these two young men Jesse Rock (left) and Nathan Hannah (right) are each incredible!

**I like the sound a banjo and accordion make together…when you throw one in a dumpster and it lands on the other. Bwahaha, Im kidding obviously. I know you can’t just throw a banjo in a dumpster without paying the hazardous material fees. **

OK, now I want to learn ragtime, so Ben…chop chop! :rofl:

Actually, I do have a question? Why do they rest their banjo’s on their right leg rather than center. Is their some advantage when playing this style, or more likely just how they learned. hmmmm.
