Turning 40 in three days. This past weekend I decided I needed to learn the banjo. So I picked one up. Any good sensible woman should know a thing or two around the banjo. So far, i love it.

Congratulations! What kind? 4 string, 5 string, resonator, open back? What kind of music are you interested in learning: bluegrass, clawhammer, jazz, etc.?
Whatever your genre of music, my suggestion is to find a good teacher and take lessons. You'll learn faster with fewer bad habits to break.

I’m starting out with a 5-string Ibanez, 22 frets with a resonator. I’m interested in bluegrass and clawhammer. I will be looking for lessons soon. :)

For teacher information, look on the left hand side of the page and under Learn, click on Find a teacher and then on advanced search. There you can choose style, levels taught and teaching method. You can also limit your search by putting in the State and zip code you wish to look at.
If you can't find any teacher(s) in your area, then you might want to ask on the appropriate forum about a teacher. Forums are on the left hand side also. Click on forums, browse forums, and scroll to appropriate one and click on it. To post a thread, click on new topic (top left above forum topics), give your topic a subject, ask your question(s) and click on post reply. Then check back for answers or you can subscribe to the topic (left hand side below your text) and you'll get e-mails any time there is a post.
