I have recently just got banjo number 4, well I sold my first one (Deering Goodtime) to part fund getting this new banjo so I know own X3.
I think it will be a while before I have the pennies and to be fair the need to get another banjo. I also have a feeling it is going to be a bit difficult to get something better than my new Epi? Wont stop me trying however LOL.
Just wish my skill level would increase at a level approaching my banjo acquisition status. Somehow I doubt that will be happening sometime soon :-/ Unfortunately my new banjo did not turn me into the banjo pro/god i was hoping for :-(
Well I have now been practicing for slightly over 2 years (not continuously mind). I do feel as though I have made good if steady progress over the last two years.
I am now at the stage where I would like to think about the possibility of playing with others and would like nothing more in the future than to be able to join/get a jazz band going.
Well I would never have considered that a thought of mine early on in my playing, my goal was to be able to play some tunes to keep me occupied/relax but I have now moved my goal posts somewhat. LOL
Maybe my goal posts are still a little far away from me at this time in my progress but I think maybe it is a good idea to set some medium term goals as much as the short term finish this song type of goal.
Well this blog should remind me of where I got to and where I want to go from here. Lets see If I can make my goal a reality?
Its a bit scary putting a statement like that on my blog. I don't want to re visit this post in the future to see I have not got anywhere near my goal. Well I can only go so fast I suppose so lets give it a little time and see how we go. Maybe come back to this blog post in a year?
Well that will do for now.
