Approaching More Milestones

I have been riding out a monster headache since Wednesday. This one is so bad, even bad movies don’t help,

To take my mind off the pain I thought I would share some exciting news.


At this moment we have 199 sponsors on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/Dobro33H

This sort of thing can quickly change one way or another, but right now it is kind of cool. It’s a good thing because we have a ton of material in the works exclusively for our Patreon friends.


In other news, The How and the Tao of Old Time Banjo has 98 reviews on Amazon. 85% of the reviews give it five stars. This amazes me because the book was never intended for a large audience. I wrote the book as a free handout for an after-school banjo club. When I made the book freely available people said that I was crazy, but we increased sales of the book and introduced a massive number of people to the joy of old-time banjo.


As a lot of you have noticed, I have included my mom on my YouTube channel. We discuss different topics, but the themes are usually the same. She taught me so much when I was growing up, and her teachings influence my work to this day. As Dear Old Dad says, “She is the best of us.

Right now we have 15,859 subscribers to our channel, with more clicking in every day. When we hit sixteen thousand we will have to do something special.


A new instructor will be stepping in front of the camera to whip music students back into shape. I don’t have a biography or any personal details to share with you. He is very mysterious. All I have is a name . . . Dobro Libre.


There are other things happening that I can’t talk about just yet. Keep an eye on Frailing Banjo, Patreon, YouTube and Dobro Libre for more announcements and surprises.

God bless,
