Hi All, well after three or four months it's started. The rollercoaster of Fame.
I was busking with my banjo, old timey clawhammer standards, for charity outside supermarket. Up came restaurant owner offering $50/two hours, free meal and tips. Just came home with the takings and shared meal with wifey. When I asked why me?, their response was that banjo is still such an unusual instrument....it's DIFFERENT.
I love it. BanjoHangout, Youtube, this is fast changing from interest to obsession.
Wifey said don't quit my dayjob, as I'm not due back till January....but hey.....professional musicians like me have to be patient right?
Good luck all, put yrself out there, you never know!

Hi bern, he was probably going to pay you to move on, until he saw that beard !. You don't mess with a Clawhammer exponent.
