Laying low

Wednesday, March 29, 2017 @7:13:36 AM


i think I'll be pulling back from posting on the BHO. I'll still be around and will occasionally post but for the most part just lay out. The forums aren't what they used to be and it's getting to the point where I'm out of touch with it, am tired of reading trolling and or trying to help. 

Anyway, anyone needing banjo work, lesson or just to talk banjo can always send me a message here, I will lurk and read and get the messages, keep picking and loving that banjo!

Be glad you're not a moderator. We HAVE to read all that stuff and take all sorts of nastiness from some members. If we don't have thick skins, we're in trouble. We'll miss your posts. I, for one, have really enjoyed them.

What Sherry said! John - I can understand where you're at. I hope you will continue to post as you feel it fit - to keep providing the great insight and learning tools that are available from your hand.

Thank you for being here with us.

Your posts on BHO and your LOTW have helped me tremendously over the years. I'm happy that your not quitting entirely. Sometimes you just need a break. Keep picking.

Thanks John, I can't tell you how much I've picked up from your videos... I practice the big Kahuna lick all the time and I've seen you play twice when you came to cities near me... I'll definitely miss your input

Thanks guys! The trolling and incessant internet instant expert syndrome is making me just feel drained. I'll, still contribute occasionally.

I'm with everyone here also John. Your on my friends list and I go to your recent activity before I even go check out the hottest topics. Not only has your knowledge and balanced approach to topics played a great deal on keeping me going, I also know first hand of how well you can set-up banjos.

Been a few other professional players I also took a liken to here on the hangout, It was disappointing to me they left entirely. Thanks for hanging in and being here for us.

Hey John,
I feel much the same. It takes a lot of time and energy to answer the same questions, over and over, and it can get tiring. Especially when the effort is ignored, or worse, leads to silly arguments. More and more often I find myself thinking "why bother?" If I had a good answer to that question, I would try to persuade you to continue, because your contributions are always valuable and refreshing.

Dan
