First… Thank you for a great learning site. I’m really loving it. I’ve been playing banjo for a long time have used the site to keep me learning.
The real reason I joined was to learn the guitar. I didn’t start from complete scratch and I have worked my way through the beginner’s section and just started on the intermediate section I have a couple of questions about how to best proceed.
Should you nail a song at the fastest speed before you move on to another song? I’ve moved on to other songs after temperance reel, but can just get through it at medium speed. The fast speed feels like a magic trick that I can’t figure out. Curious how others (and Banjo Ben) might attack this.
I’ve been following the checklists but noticed that songs are listed alphabetically, so some songs are harder early on in the list… What is the best way to proceed in a progressive fashion? It wasn’t until I worked through Angeline the Baker that I noticed it was alphabetical and the listened to Arkansas traveler and thought… Oh man… that seems really advanced. So any help on how to move through like a teacher might give you something slightly more advanced each week would be helpful.
And again… Thank you for a great website.
