"You Know You're a Banjo Addict When":

Posted by DrBob on Saturday, November 26, 2011

like this

OK, with  the new year upon us, we must contend with the inevitable resolutions; a time for verbally admitting our vices, etc... with the 'key' word-"admitting." In keeping with the tradition, I would like to come clean with all my BHO Buddies by admitting that I am a Banjo Addict...So, I suggest that we embark on a blog that can clarify, for those we love, just what a 'banjo addict' is. Please feel free to boldly come outta' da' closet by adding to the definition my friends. "YOU KNOW YOU'RE A BANJO ADDICT WHEN...": 1. You go on a trip, and you sneak your picks along just in case there's a music store on the way that might stock banjos;

You start pick'n early in the morning with a hot cup of coffee,and when you're done the coffee is cold, and you realize you missed breakfast, and it's lunch time. Banjo Diet?

You're driving.... A good song comes on the radio and you start doing a forward roll on the stick shift. (Banjo drive - "the lost gear")

Also, I took my banjo on our first Anniversary trip (can't believe my wife let me). Driving from Calgary,AB to Seattle,WA/Portland,OR then Vancouver, BC and back to Calgary. Almost a two week vacation. Anyways I took my banjo on the off chance we'd be able to stop and jam with my best friend John in Trail,BC in between Vancouver and Calgary. Turns out we did! Banjo addict! On that same trip I did example #1

I need to make a trip soon for 1 week. I couldn't leave my banjo that long so I will have to fork over the baggage fee.
Can I have another?.... Instead of listening to the lyrics, I try to embellish church hymns with scruggs licks....

You mean, you leave home without your banjo? If we are going away I take my banjo AND my mandolin. If we ate just going out I always have at least a guitar pick :o)

You take your picks with you, even if you are going to the store, just in case you run into a music store along the way.

You take a shower and go to wash your hair and realize you still have your picks on your fingers.

When you can't carry on a normal conversation, because you are running that new roll you just learned through your head. OR your wife says, what are you thinking about ?

KrissyJean Says:

You tell your husband you would rather skip date night because you just have to work this new song out on your banjo :) Or you hum rolls in your sleep (he just told me I started doing this) haaha

Oalbrets Says:

Humming rolls in your sleep in normal Krissy. Wait til you jump out of bed at all hours of the night to tackle that roll you can't seem to get down. It happens about 10 times every night and your husband will think you are going looney. Ha Ha

...when your 2-year-old starts calling you "banjo." Seriously, my son decided on Monday that "banjo" is my name-o.

Be proud to be called banjo. Your lucky it's not Fiddle.

When you've had the thumb pick on so long your thumbnail has taken on a different shape. :-),
