Due to RH/arm pain I forced myself to leave the banjo alone for 3 days and took lots of Aleve. Had some advice to pick lighter and have more relaxed RH/arm. I'm trying but it's hard.
Just got "Masters of the 5str Banjo" - coo what a masterpiece (tks JJ). Got my nose in that and have just discovered JD Crowe.
This weeks effort, a very slow stab at Pig in a Pen. Needs to be a bit faster and have a tag on the end - this week's aim.

Sounding sweet! That banjo is singin'. Hope the arm is feeling better, and glad you like the book - I must have read it through thirty times, and there's still a lot of stuff to be discovered. Would be good if Messrs Trischka and Wernick did a Vol 2!!!

Hya Pat. I found that free lessons page by Brian A Ramsay. I typed his name into the browser and it brought me to the BHO learning page, dont ask me how I got there. Anyway the Brian Ramsay lessons are there. As i said, I had started to read his stuff and taking the first steps, he is a realy good teacher.
Im going to start from scratch again now, but at least I think the frustration might have gone.
All the best Pat
