New lesson requests/suggestions

I’m getting the impression that most requests for new lessons happen over on Facebook. But sorry, tried that a couple of years ago and hated it, so here I am.

It would be cool if you could put something covering pentatonic and appreggios into the queue. And maybe after that a primer on improvising. I’m sure the queue is quite long, but I’m only just getting started and have plenty to keep me busy as it is.

Hey Jim!
I agree that those would be great suggestions. The combination of your requests reminded me of something I had previously seen on uTube and enjoyed. The following video might be useful for pentatonics, arpeggios and improvisation. Granted, I’d prefer a lesson from Ben, but until that happens, this might be helpful:

Thanks Mike! Took a very quick peek at it, but I’m at work as I type this so had to bail out. I have Don’s “Dummy” book. And I snagged “Going To California”, from that classic bluegrass band Led Zeppelin from him a while back. I’ll definitely check this link out soon.

Just got back from assignment, and I concur arpeggio work outs would be great.

Hey i have a suggestion.
