Lucas - I'm doing the same. It's a bit more challenging (at least for me) than Scruggs style.

Good luck.

Hi Lucas. Glad to hear you are interested in Reno style. I have a full series of Reno style DVDs available on my website You also may want to check the back issues of banjo news letter for my Reno style column and Ed Chernesky's column from the early 80's. Also check out Don Wayne Reno's DVD by homespun tapes. I have many clips of Don playing on my youtube channel. Feel free to shoot me a message if you have any questions. I'll be glad to help the best that I can.

Jason: you are evidently making a real impression on the younger generation of the Reno style. My brother-in-law (Jerry Haffelt) and I go to several festivals and instrument shows and the young talent that are playing Reno style banjo is a real uplift. We are very appreciative of your impression on these young folk. Thanks, Terry O'dell.
