    I think it’s actually called a stealth banjo. It’s just like a regular banjo except the fifth string kinda tunnels under the fretboard behind the fifth fret. Something like that.

    Okay, Thanks, I finally saw where he tells
    about it, and yes it does tunnel, and oddly enough, he built it………

    Hey Bones/Craigs

    First of, I am not banjoben he just answered this in an earlier video. (I was curious about this too so I did some looking in his videos).

    If you look at 1:36 you can tell there are only 5 strings. The 5th string is tunneled to the top of the neck. thats all I remember from his post, if you look long enough you can find his response.

    I enjoy your videos immensely. I especialy liked the advanced version of Salt Creek. I would like more advanced version, just to glean the licks from the songs.

    I’m a beginner, and it would be really helpful if I could see
    what both hands are doing at the same time.

  21. Tazmania33quick Says:

    I’m just a beginner and it would be really helpful
    if you could slowly show whats goin on with both
    hands,perferably a split screen.

  22. sccoonhunter Says:

    I really enjoy these good gospel banjo tunes. I like the one you did on Life’s Railway to Heaven and this arrangment of I’ll Fly Away is great. I got the tabs for these on richards and southern and they are great. Keep it up Ben. And i was wondering if you might try to work up an arrangment of I Feel Like Travelling On and Just a Little Talk With Jesus. I’m interested in these songs and would be sure to get the tabs for these. Thanks for the great songs.

    Hi Ben sure like the playing im kind of a beginner to intermed., and i bought your tabs to I’ll fly away and foggy mtn., problem is the tab to foggy mtn was in guitar and the player i downloaded doens’t play banjo, too bad would have been nice to hear at my speed setting.

    Relax, Ben….. you’re not alone. 7:47…… I have what I call “Millsitis” where I play my hammer-ons with my index and ring finger on the third string almost like the way Jim Mills does it. It’s what I’ve gotten used to and we’re all differerent, but you’re right, everyone should start off on the right foot.
