The books are fantastic.
The books are fantastic. Please send my thanks to Ross. His introduction about memorization and the importance of studying are inspirational to me because I can't physically play banjo every day. I have tendinitis in my left wrist which limits how much I can play. So, to hear his words and now to seriously apply them have meant so much to me.

very helpful
The Rhythm Backup Play Along is very helpful as I am learning backup techniques. Can hardly wait for Volume 2 to arrive.

This is a great learning tool for everyone
.....I can't tell you how useful the play along backup band cd is for me. I'm only working on one song right now but I'm able to play the chords up and down the neck smoothly at the slow speed and I was able to keep up with the second speed better than I thought I could. And it's so easy to hear the chord changes at the slow speed. This is a great learning tool for everyone but mostly for people like me who don't have the opportunity to learn to play with others now has a chance to do that. Good job on getting this together!

My family is amazed
Ross. I can't wait to dig into the new materials. You do a superb job with these teaching materials. A year ago, I purchased vol 1 and 2 of a set that included a tab CD, example play CD and a play along CD. In 30 min to an hour 5 times a week, I've committed almost all of vol 1 to memory. My family is amazed

I am very satisfied that I did this
........ These are great instructions and I am very satisfied that I did this. I am playing songs on the Banjo and it is a very nice feeling, thank you. John C......Hi Ross, Love the play-along-CD and the DVD - thanks again! I surprised my banjo teacher with your version of Old Joe Clark - that was great!

love it.
......We got one of the play along backup cd's at the workshop and love it. We had a guitar, mandolin and fiddle, --all beginners--over on Tuesday night and had a great time with it. In fact we have a "weekly thing" worked out now so we will probably be ordering the other volume very soon...take care,
