I wonder how much money I have spent over the years playing clawhammer banjo. Lets see... 4 banjos ($2500), 40 CDs ($500), occasional lessons ($500), tuners and strings and misc ($500), Books and DVDs ($500)... I guess about $3500.
How much money have I made? Lets see...when my case was open at the farmers market ($25 in change), playing with the Konocti Fiddlers at the Kelseyville Pear Festival and the Anderson Marsh Old Time Bluegrass Festival (about $40). Getting 3rd place at the fair ($25)... I guess about $90!
Predictable line...."Playing the banjo? Priceless!"

Just think what it would cost for a good therapist or a truckload of beer!

Well, at least you're not robbing liquor stores to pay for your habit.
