Since then, he has gone on to perform with artists such as Craig Morgan and Taylor Swift. Most would consider that a solid success story... Ben resigned from Taylor's band to focus on a major publishing deal with his sisters and make his instructional videos & website.
Aside from being a friend and a great guy, I'm featuring Ben this week because he is an expert with the heart of a teacher. Someday, in my own way, I aspire to be the same.
I've been watching "Banjo Ben's" instructional videos since he started making them. Rather than trying to describe the indescribable, here is a classic video of his: Foggy Mountain Breakdown.
If you are interested in studying with Ben, he has quite a few free instructional videos on YouTube. You can combine those with the TAB files and backing tracks on banjobenclark.com to get a full lesson. He even does lessons over Skype!
