Howdy, new here at BH from east of Lexington, Kentucky

Posted by Gorhamite on Saturday, September 19, 2020

Just wanted to say Hey! 

My biggest regret in life so far is I never learned to play an instrument for at least my own personal pleasure.  I haven't croaked just yet so, here we go.  I bought my first banjo this week after a fair amount of online and music store research.   It is a Gold Tone CC 12" Bob Carlin open back, it's so darn pretty I'm afraid to pick it up (just kidding) but it is beautiful.  Took a wonderful ride through southern Indiana to pick it up from a posting I saw here in the BH marketplace.  Nice young man who builds top notch mandolins gave me a fair price and much hospitality.

Anyway, if anyone lives near the Mountain Parkway and wants to shoot the breeze, let me know.  I do not yet paly, I am a beginning beginer.

Welcome to the HangOut.
Here's a guy who can get you started with one finger chords.
He doesn't explain it, but I think he's strumming all the strings, then picking the first with his index finger, then 5th with the thumb, and first again.
Anyway, that's how I do it for beginners.

Welcome to the Hangout, Lester. You'll find plenty of friendly advice and help here. I suspect you will find others from Kentucky and who may be closer to you than I am.
