4 weeks into learning - getting messy

Posted by Patrick Randall on Thursday, March 22, 2007

This week's update is another 20 bpm of speed (ha!) on Cumberland Bl**dy Gap. The increased speed again comes at the expense of missed picks and poor timing. I'll press on though:

I've been busy trying to learn the G licks 1,2,& 3 (lessons 20, 21, 22) but am having a lot of trouble putting them together in Train45. Almost got Wildwood Flower (p 37) together but it's messy too and I can't get above 168bpm and keep it in time. Also forget to move RH between X & Y positions. It's hard this banjo stuff.

Sound`s fine to me, but what do I know, I`m a frailer. I wish I had been that good at 4 weeks ( I wish I was that good now ).
