That's sounding good Shelly... you're coming along fine. If you don't mind a little advice, I'd try to memorize the tune and concentrate on your fingering and roll patterns as opposed to trying to follow along with the tab.
Tab is really useful for first learning specific ways to play tunes, but eventually to really get the feel for a lot of your right hand technique, it's easier to concentrate on your picking if you're not busy sight reading the tablature.
Keep it up

Thanks! I'm getting there with the memorization but it takes me forever to memorize a song.

It still takes me too long to memorize some of the standard Scruggs tunes. I'm struggling right now with Sally Goodin. But it pays off

Hey Shelly, it was your video that inspired me to post mine. I wouldn't have done it otherwise. I think you're doing great. Don't forget, i hve a lot more time on my hands to practice than you do, so you will get there. I keep my banjo on a stand rather than in the case. This way it is always there and i can pick it up even if for only ten minutes. I always strive to get some banjo time in each day regardless of lenght. Don't get discouraged!

I have my banjo on a stand next to my bed. It's the first thing I see when I wake up and the last thing I see as I go to sleep thinking, "I really want to practice, but I'm sooooooo sleepy.....zzzzzzz."
