I really like the way Ben arranges his tunes the only thing I wish is he would make a slower transition from speed 2 or 3 to the final speed. I have yet to get up to the top on any of them seems I need a speed just a little under the top and a little over the middle. But I keep at it, hopefully I’ll get there someday.
It just flat amazes me Ben can play guitar, banjo, mandolin, fiddle and piano all great,I am struggling with one! Could get a guy down…LOL.

I seldom play with the top speed versions either (they are typically smokin’ it), but that’s where Tabledit comes in real handy.
Regarding the fact that Ben is so talented: I agree his versatility and skill is fantastic. However, I guarantee that there are people who hear you play and are amazed at how good you are as well. It’s all relative… 99.something% of us players are better than some and worse than some. Once you get into the elite class of players, then it becomes just a matter of opinion (and I find most of those folks always have someone they look up to as well).
