I thought Ben's songs and lessons would be a great way for me to get better. And I've always wanted to learn how to flatpick.

Welcome to the site Todd, you made a wise decision. Ben is a great teacher, person and picker and you will improve for sure. Not only will Ben's lessons help you with that, but members here on the forum are more than willing to help as well. There's alot of talent and knowledge itching to be shared.
I don't know what the "Dust in the Wind " fingerpicking is called either, but it's a good song that never seems to get old. Ben does some fingerpicking lessons on guitar occasionally. In fact, this week's lesson is one. Most of the guitar stuff is flatpicking, so you're at the right place. Jump in and have fun!
