So, Benji, I was just cruising the ol’ inter-web, and I randomly stumbled acrost your YouTube page. I noticed that about 10 months ago, you made the comment that you had “just bought a new webcam,” so you could “start posting videos again,” but there was only ONE video posted since then, and that was four months ago! What’s the deal?
I had a few other technical issues to work through, but the new video is up, and I’ll be posting them monthly now.
Bought your CD “solo banjo” in Mantorville last Saturday night. A delight to listen too. Do you have other Cd’s available? I noticed that you gave special thanks to Mark Anderson referencing a 1995 album. Where would I be able to get a copy?
Thanks for picking up my CD; glad to hear you enjoyed it! My 1995 recording, “For Brian”, has probably been out-of-print since 1997 or thereabouts. I do have a number of other projects in the works, however, some of which will be coming out in 2011. In the meantime, I’m also posting new instrumental tunes (available as free MP3 downloads) to my main web site ( http://BenjiFlaming.com/ ) every Tuesday.
Thanks for your interest!

Hello stranger from Effie. Been a while so I thought I’d drop you a line or two. Hope you are doing well.
Really enjoy your playing. A lot! Id like to learn som Christmas songs but require tabs due to my (low) skill level. Have you put out any tabs? Come all Ye Faithful, for example. Thanks and keep up the good work.
The short answer is that I don’t (currently) have any tablature. The longer answer is this vlog:
Thanks for writing – glad you’ve been enjoying my music!
Hi! you music is really nice and interesting. I don’t believe I’ve ever seen that model of Nechville before.
My real question is about what strings you use for the octave mandolin tuning of you uke. Is that a concert or a tenor? Do you have string recommendations for GDAE tuning on a tenor uke?
I’m glad my music has brought you some enjoyment! Unfortunately, I’m not sure what string gauges I currently have on my ukulele. When I originally bought it from Gary Bartig (who, as far as I know, originated the idea of octave mando tuning on the uke), he gave me a piece of paper with the gauges .025, .027W, .034W, and .044W written on it. When I had him restring it shortly before I recorded my Christmas CD, however, I noticed that he used slightly different gauges, although I don’t remember exactly what they were. Your best option would probably be to reach out to him for info.
