    Hi Barry,

    Thanks for the lesson, I’m having a hard time with following the notes visually so is there any way that you can put the notes in tab form so It would be easier for me to follow and learn ?

    Can I order a Parlor with a scoop and ties on the 5th, 7th & 9 fret and stain dark with blond bow ties ?

    Wonderful teaching lessons ! And the best thing in my opinion is your smile and your communicative joy in playing ! I am 66 years old but I love banjo sound and clawhammer sound, so I am trying to learn playing it… I played a little guitar but banjo is so fun !

  • Penny

    Thank you!

  • Arnie Brown

    Just a simple THANK YOU for putting these two videos out. Again THANK YOU Barry, greatly appreciated.
