Lessons have seemed a little less frequent lately. My guess is that it's because Ben is putting his heart and soul into the new web site. Having built a few web sites of my own, and nothing anywhere near the level of complexity that Ben is trying to put together, I can tell you it's no simple task.

I'm betting that once Ben gets the new site launched and all of the new stuff rolling, he's going to have a LOT more time to dedicate to new lessons.

Hang in there. :D

Well in my case, if he only posted one lesson a quarter, I'll still never catch up with them all. My lifetime membership has already paid for itself 5 times over.

I'm not sure it's the web site though. Over on Facebook it looks like he's branching out into online instrument sales. That's probably what's really occupying all his time. That, and performing, and going to shows. And fishing and raising kids. Ben should move to Venus, he'd get it all in since the days are over 5000 hours long there.

I know from a few conversations with him that it is indeed the website taking up Ben's time. I don't know all the details, but I know it has taken much longer and has been a lot more work for him than was anticipated. The instrument sales you mentioned are part of the new website setup as well.
