Oh, but I wish I had started years ago; but too busy making the way to being a big success...Anyhoo, I am able now to enjoy a little free time and most of it goes to banjo and song writing. I am still a novice; but I can put together a few verses and accompany them with "slow rolls/two finger picking" combination with a little bum-dit-ty thrown in once in a while. I still have problems with the slides, hammer ons and pull offs; but getting better. Thanks for taking the time to comment; and I wish you well on your journey. I agree that Janet Davis book that you described was(is) very helpful, along with the dvd for it...
Happy Days to you over there.

Hi Verne, thanks for the nice e-mail.
It's never too late to learn new things.. and it's really good for a brain to keep itself growing - especially in the arts. You should write down your story of taking up the banjo.. I'm sure a lot of people would be inspired by your experience with the task.
It's good to meet you my friend. Cheers -Karyn.
