If the banjo is your first instrument.

Posted by cadzilla1980 on Wednesday, July 29, 2009

If the banjo was the first instrument anyone learned, how old were you when you started and about how long have you been playing, and about how many hrs a week do you pick?


I am 38 and started earlier this year. I try and practice 3.5 hrs a week. (not much I know)

65. One hour a day average, so about 7 a week plus jams. Retired, so I have mucho time.

I started in 1960 when I was 17. I pick some (5string) and strum some (4string), but I don't keep track of the hours.

I played from age 13 til I was 16 and now I'm back learning the same instrument over again.

I started back in the '70s when I was in my 30s but had to quit to raise 3 teenagers.  Started back at 48 and haven't stopped since.  Am 66 now and practice about an hour a day.  Have been in bands but now am retired from that, love to jam and go to festivals.
