Glad you are enjoying your life with banjos. Just remember that old-time music is better than it sounds. (Bumper sticker.)

Richard, you are so lucky. All of those fantastic banjo players around. You can`t fail and if Mary is as nice as she looks you`re in for a great time.

Sandra and Dean,
thanks for those comments...it's true I'm lucky being here amongst so many good oldtime players. But I think I never would have recognized just how lucky if it weren't for all the folks on BHO from all over the world who appreciate the music. Of course Dean hails from Alabama so he's probably been indoctrinated since birth--but Sandra, and all those people in the UK and on the continent playing oldtime! that really inspires me to look around and soak up what's left and what's new in oldtime culture here in its heartland....

*** I always consider myself a beginner cause there is an endless amount of material to learn and wonderful people to meet along the way. I take each moment one second at a time enjoying the good moments and my mistakes. If I think I know it all well then, there is nothing more to learn. The whole journey makes all the difference....not just the good times. Most of the things that happen in life you can't control BUT you can control the way you look and approach life's challenges. Sounds like you know this so your off to a great start ! Peace be with you and please.....get some soundfiles and pictures posted of your awesome Chanterelle banjo.
