Not So Banjo-less!

Posted by chicofry on Monday, February 18, 2013

I got a banjo yesterday! It's a new Oscar Shmidt B30 that I got from the local store, Music Connection. 

What clinched this decision was the knowledgeable staff, the assurance that they would help me take care of it if anything happened it it, and they had great prices. I mean, 69 bucks for a hard case? Deal. 

The hardest part of it was dropping her off at home right after the purchase to go shopping with my wife. It was the only thing on my mind but my wife was terrific through the whole process that I owed her some time before I was lost to the world.

I'm loving every moment that I have with it and I'm dedicated to investing time and effort into learning the basics. Thank you for your support and your advise!

If you are interested in taking lessons you could contact Sid Lewis right there in Chico. If you need some help getting started I could help you with that. I live in Magalia. The main thing is to pratice a lot and have fun. If you need some help with anything the let me know. Good luck.

Thanks for the heads up about Sid! There seems to be a few people from Chico, or the surround areas. The folks at Music Connection said that banjos are 'flying off the wall' recently but that could be like asking a barber if you need a haircut... :D
