I've created a new page on Facebook. It will be a new outlet for my Lick Of The Week videos and to discuss learning about the banjo. Here's the link:
I can use this page to host my live workshops via Facebook too, so this should be a cool resource. I am not going to be posting anymore advice here on the BHO and probably not anymore LOTW videos either, so this FB page will be my outlet for teaching from now on. Anyone interested in joining in there is more than welcome! Just send me a group contact request via FB sometime. There's three questions that need to be answered to make sure participants are cool with the way I teach. There also won't be trolling and or the kind of stuff that routinely goes on here. As Barney said...I will nip it in the bud,haha.
Anyway, just thought I would share the news. Take care and happy upcoming New Year!

I'm going to miss you here on the BHO. Keep picking. Guess I might have to join Facebook.

Lots of our members are not members of Facebook and won't join, so by taking your LOTW off the Hangout, you're actually depriving a lot of members of your knowledge and expertise. I think that's kind of a shame.

The videos are still on YouTube, which is linked here Sherry. Most folks know they can find them there and or on my personal website. I don't know how many member use Facebook but it won't matter since they videos are all online, easily accessible.
I'm not taking anything "off" the site here, I'm just not contributing anymore advice on the BHO. Regardless, the site will move on and be fine. I'm just a drop in a big bucket,haha.

Just sent a request to join your group John. I just started watching your vamping videos you made back in 2009. Good stuff. Just wanted you to know that you've given a gift that keep giving.
