Jim has a great selection of Learn To Play videos on BHO, including his Bluegrass Banjo lesson series, which is excellent.

Yes, just started to learn this one last night. Jim Pankey has made banjo fun and gives some easy breaks to the old standards. I always look forward to him debuting another song. I butcher most of them but it is fun.

What I really like about Jim's videos is that he offers alternative ways of playing various segments of each tune. This inspires me to incorporate some of his ideas into tunes I already know and conversely, use other ideas in his arrangements. This has been very helpful with improvising my own arrangements for songs. My goal is to be able to do that on the fly (I've got a ways to go on that). Jim is a valuable resource for the banjo community.

I've been learning banjo for over 3 years now, and I've had a bunch of lessons from various teachers, and imo, after watching several of Jim's videos, I do believe he's one of the best teachers out there. He explains things so well, and he seems to be very much attuned with what beginners and intermediates needs are.
