I'm bringing back the Banjo versus TV project.
I was really pleased with the way the project worked out last year. Since I first made my resolution in January of 2008 and started tracking my banjo time against my TV time, I've really gotten a lot more banjo time in. Take a look at the numbers. On the right are my 2008 banjo hours (in blue) and on the left are my Q3-2007 and Q4-2007 estimated banjo hours (in purplish-red).
See how much more banjo time I had in 2008? Great stuff! Pat on the back for me!
And then it stopped. Starting on January 1st, 2009, I hit a dry spell, banjo-wise. I was a much better player than I'd been one year prior, but I wasn't a better practicer.
So I'm bringing it back, maybe for good. Sunday March 1st, 2009, marked the beginning of week 53 of the Banjo versus TV project. That's the day that I picked up my old steno pad and started tracking my banjo and TV hours again. (Yeah, that means I'm a few weeks behind in my blogging. I'll catch up.)
Big thanks to Dave, my banjo teacher, who suggested that I continue this project. "I'm a big fan of what works," Dave said. "And this works for you."
