Every banjo instructor I have had the opportunity to meet -- Trischka, Wernick, Adams, Munford, Shean, Evans, Gitlin, Hatfield, J. Davis, G. Davis, Collins --and many others -- say jamming is the best way to learn. So . . . Why are students of the banjo so reluctant to show up at a jam? I remember chatting with Ben Eldrige at Gettysburg burg years ago. Yes, I had an agenda. I wanted to see him up close picking a particular downhill sequence. Ben took me aside and showed me the licks. The point: THAT is a characteristic of most banjo pickets. They are willing to take the time to help the newbies.
At a jam you have not only a chance to improve you timing, learn some new tunes, meet some other pickets (not just of banjo), but you get to choose a momentary teacher!
So do not turn down an invitation to a jam -- nay, get onine and find a jam. Hey are all over the place. Go to a festival! You will have a chance to jam (if only on the periphery) every day (and night).
