I'm glad that there are places like Banjo Hangout, because in my small town I am the ONLY person who plays banjo! I'm glad I can ask questions and get and give help here on the banjo hangout.
Anyway, just think I'd tell you a bit about myself. I am 15 years old and I live in the Small town of Bonners Ferry, Idaho. I really enjoy Hunting, Fishing, and camping in the wilderness here in north Idaho. But my biggest passion is Old Time Music. Unlike my friends, I cannot stand Heavy Metal and Rap, so I'm not that popular among the younger Generation here. I love playing My banjo with my sister who plays fiddle. I play in public sometimes, and that is always very fun! The Banjo brings me Happiness and makes me enjoy life so much more. I look forward to learning more, and know I can only get better.
PS: My dentist LITERALLY thought banjos were from the middle ages until I corrected him :)

That's great!!! Glad to hear you got the Banjo bug. Being the "only one" to play banjo is a familiar place for most banjo players. Keep at it and you will find a lifetime of ever learning and enjoyment that will last far after the Heavy Metal and Rap finally fades away. I started learning seriously at your age and still at it having fun and learning new stuff 40 years later. Eventually you will find others to play with besides your sister, and you are lucky to have her. Play lots. Hope to hear you sometime.
