One of these days I am going to be able to change my experience level to something higher than "novice" I have recently begun lessons... although my teacher's background is mainly composition/guitarist, he does play banjo and is teaching me to sight read standard musical notation and is delving deeper into music theory and how it all comes together. Someday I will actually know what I am doing and why I am doing it... it will take time but ifeel it will come.
I just thought that I would update my blog in the event that some of you out there were becoming bored with the other "Cute" one that I had on display for lo these many months... Wow, somebody immortalizes you in song and you start telling people what to do... you know who you are.
