I just wanted to take a minute here and thank you for the great CD's you've made for beginning bluegrass. I purchased your first CD a couple of months ago and just now recieved the second one.
I first started playing back in the 70's and played for a year or so, but because there were no teachers available locally I didn't progress too far with just my Pete Seger book and eventually lost interest.
I recently dusted off my "Hoyer" banjo and put some new strings on it after realizing how much information is now on the web for learning. I picked up a lot of information off different sites and also Youtube videos, but after using your first CD for beginners, I have to say that I've learned more from that CD in a couple of months than I did for over a year back in the 70's.
I just ordered a new Recording King R-20 and I'm pretty excited about jumping into your second CD with the new Banjo! I'm loving this hobby again and your CD has given me the knowledge and confidence that was lacking all those years ago.

Learn Bluegrass Banjo CD
Many of you know that I have my own series of CDs for banjo and fiddle. I received an e-mail from Steve today. He lives in Rhode Island. He ordered the Beginning Bluegrass Banjo CD 1 a while back, and now he just received his order for Disk 2 and wanted to let me know how he was doing. Here is the e-mail Steve sent me:
