A weekly check-in on the Banjo versus TV project -- J.R.'s resolution to spend more time in 2008 on his banjo than on TV.
Having trouble with "Do Lord." I'm finding it hard to transition between a forward roll and a forward-backward role.
This is the first week for which I had less banjo than TV (2 hours 20 minutes versus 8 hours). Darn. But in the big picture, banjo's still ahead. By 6 hours.
Better not let this happen again next week.

Think of banjo practice as playing a video game. The point of the game is to hit the most notes correctly in a given amount of time. The given amount of time is based on the tempo at which you can play your song or exercise or whatever. Now then, if you are like me, you always want to play just a little better and believe you can if you just play it one more time...then one more time...then one..... Well, you get the idea.
Good luck on your playing. Of course, you could move out here in the Arizona desert with me where TV receptions is so bad that playing a banjo is the best entertainment there is.
