Maybe going to the States?

Posted by Valentina on Sunday, July 31, 2011

I was talking to a friend of mine about my youtube banjo lessons.... not being as useful as I thought it would be. And she said to me... then you have to go to the States for a while and learn the real thing... being there. And I thought... why not? Maybe I can live there for a couple of months.... work somewhere to make some money and pay for rent and food... and learn... yeah... why not? 

But the thing is... I don't know anyone living there and I don't know if there's anyone who would teach me. Are there any schools or clubs or groups that I can contact? I've never done something like this before in a foreign country.. so I am a little lost here....

Any ideas?

Valentina, glad to see your trying to learn the banjo. I would suggest trying to use Skype to learn the banjo. By using a camera connected to the internet you can receive live face to face video to learn from an instructor, try He has students all over the world. I highly recommend him.

I'd go with garman's reccomendation for Skype as well. I've heard good things about fiddlin-al too. If you really want to make an adventure out of it, I'd reccommend going somewhere near Nashville and do it while there's some nearby festivals that you could attend...

Check out NashCamp in Nashville. Sonny Osborn will be there and alot of other great pickers. There is one going on now, but another one will be in the fall. Sonny is on here on the BHO...
contact him "The Chief"
