I've been working at Ben's Fireball Mail (Intermediate) for a while and I thought I'd share a video of my rendition :mrgreen:

As I mentioned in my previous post, I'm pretty new -- picked up my banjer in October 2016 and have played it every day since then (minus only 2 days!). Be gentle :P

Sounds great to me! Keep on practicing and it'll get easier and easier.

Smooth and even on the tempo all the way through. Very good!

I stayed up all night to see where the sun went. Then it dawned on me.

Great job skunk! I got out the old D-28 and played rhythm right along with you on the clip. Your timing is excellent and picking is clean. I do believe you have the makings for a fine banjo player. Look forward to seeing you progress.

Thanks folks! I appreciate the positive feedback. Ben's lessons are awesome. I need to start playing in some jams so I can learn to play in groups. I've been going basically all solo thus far.

You're right, playing in jams is a lot different than playing solo. It can be either encouraging or discouraging to a new player depending on the folks you play with. It would be good to find a buddy that played guitar you could practice one on one with for a while before getting into a crowd. Of course that's not always possible but if we lived close together I'd sure volunteer! ;)
