It seems that when I use my phone to post, it won't make paragraph breaks. Hm.

I feel all the thought you put into the banjo without even touching it still counts, keeps the mind in the right place and help for when you do get to practice. Keep on keepin on. Good luck on your banjo journey.

Ron, what a good idea to make chords when walking and stuff. I'm going to try that. I think it's all the thinking when I'm away from the banjo that helps. Regardless of my problems, I fully consider myself a banjo person now, so I better get there!

Thinking always helps...LOL Well maybe not, thinking gets me trouble sometimes..... :-)

Lordy, thinking gets me into far more messes than not thinking. Maybe I'll stick with just not thinking.

Sounds like 'Banjo Zen' to me, Shelly...but I'm a firm believer that, if ya' just plod along consistently, you just can't help but pick stuff up. Consistency and perseverence always pay. Keep up 'da good work.. :-)

I listen to really hard stuff- then I try to fake it as best i can--
There is always one piece of the fake that teaches me something.
also you can work off the middle string-there are many improves you can work from there cause you are playing in open G. try different things
where the fret markers are. I have been playing about 1 year- have alot to learn-like you.

Hey Shelley, sounds like you've come a long way in a short time. Well done! One thing i do which some people may not agree with is to leave my banjo on it's stand. This way it's there, i see it, i pick it up and i play. If it's in the case it's out of sight and out of mind. :)
