Anyone interested in helping someone get started playing the banjo?

Hello to you both.
You've posted in the Scruggs area and the Other Styles area. Best be clear what you're aiming for. Hope you have lots of fun and satisfaction from learning and playing.

The Banjo Hangout will probably provide all the help you can use but you should narrow the area a bit from "All Other Styles" to eithe Scruggs style for bluegrass or Clawhammer for old timey music. This will maximize the liklihood of your receiving responses that you can use. Just Browsing the BHO will afford a lot of information but you can also post specific questions. If you can find a good teacher in your area, taking lessons is generally a good idea. But, failing that, there are tons of Book/cd combos out there and learning dvds, too. Some of the good ones include the Scruggs book, Nickerson, the Janet Davis You Can TEach Yourself . . ., and the jack hatfield series. There are others as well. Welcome to the BHO.
