Mandolin Mondays #122 w/ Special Guest Banjo Ben Clark

Rating: 1 votes, 5.00 average.
Internet sensation and online bluegrass educational guru Banjo Ben Clark sent us a lovely solo arrangement of an old hymn played on his Rattlesnake mandolin.



Ben has had a successful performing career, having toured with Lila McCann, Josh Gracin, and even Taylor Swift. He also made a name for himself as a Nashville songwriter with a coveted publishing deal from Sony Music. But but by far what he's known best for is his incredibly popular bluegrass video lessons series online.

Over the past decade, Banjo Ben has helped change the scene of online music education for bluegrass musicians. What started out as a humble youtube lesson series has now evolved into one of the premier learning portals on the web for banjo, guitar, and mandolin players. You can check out lessons to similar arrangements at his website here: https://banjobenclark.com/

And as always, tune in next week for more Mandolin Mondays! Until then...

Happy Picking!
David

    I love the mandomondays, and usually sit in awe of players zipping through numbers I'll never master. Great stuff, but today was special. When Ben Clark (can't we call him Mando Ben?) started into the Old Rugged Cross, I thought I heard a backing track, his timing at the slow waltz tempo, his double stops and harmonies were so spot-on. The sort of tune you listen to without paying a lot of attention until you realize that - yeah. that's the way to play it. I'll learn it. I may never play that particular hymn outside my home, but I'll play better for knowing how. Thanks David, for this series.
