Hey Jim. A friend of mine came to camp at a festival several years ago and said, "Hey Ron, I just heard a banjo picker thats worse than you." haha I don't remember the guys name, but unfortunately he wasn't worse than me. :) Ron

my 'friend' larry, during college years, put his guitar back in his case and said to me: '[b]dude, you've got miserable timing[/b]', so I guess it would have to be the guy nobody will pick with?

Hey Jim, No such thing as a bad picker, from novice to pro were all good.

When I play some of my recordings...I'm the worst I've ever heard!!!

I've heard a few,who shall remain unnamed,who had a rather tentative grasp on timing. That makes them hard to listen to for me.

I know a couple guitar pickers that have no timing and they try to sing to it as well...How do you tell them in a nice way?

I reckon when you've been playing more than 50 years like we have the bad ones get lost among the good ones. I've known a few bad pickers and if I was able to help them out some, I did. some of the bad ones that didn't get better put it back under the bed and left it there. But over the years I can't say any of them were so bad I could call them the WORST.
Now I do remember one feller who got picked to shreds on a forum a while back whose TASTE was so bad he might qualify but even he had some good points.

Before I would say this about other pickers, I would have to be as good as some of the great ones. Therefore I will say it is I at this point in time. You wait though, I will get there in a few years.
