Thank you, Your DVD on the Fundamentals of Banjo is fantastic. No one should be without this item. It has helped me tremendously. Because of you and your support and web site. I am learning how to play this beautiful instrument that I love so much. Thank you for your web site and for being there to help. I am recommending this site to my friends. Once again, thank you.  Sincerely,  Autumn Rose LeFay

I have got to tell you that this DVD/CD set is something I should have had from the beginning. In my opinion it takes the beginner, in the best way I have ever seen, very carefully from square one, forward to playing tunes. May I suggest a web site link titled “Beginners Start Here” and list only two must have items, “Fundamentals of Five String…” and The Banjo Encyclopedia. Dennis Lottman

Although I have only had the DVD’s a few days, I can’t believe the progress I have made sticking with my same 1hour a day practice. I knew that your material would fit my learning style as soon as I saw and read some of it before I ordered. Although I had learned rolls from other book sources and videos before, your method took me where I needed to go to understand what I was playing and why. The best compliment I can pass on is from my wife – she said my timing is so much better and she likes to listen to what I am playing (she ran for the head phones before).  I am sure you get tons of notes like this, but I just wanted you to know how pleased – and grateful – I am. Thank you! Gerry

The DVD was a hit for my nephew for Christmas. Thank you for your last minute assistance. Ck
