I am relatively new to playing the banjo but not to life. It has been fascinating to read about the many many other banjo experiences here at BHO and relate to each and every one of them. They are as varied as the pickers who post here. I visit here often but do not comment all that often. It seems every time I visit for 20 minutes or so, I get the urge to play. Then I remember the sage words of Chris Quinn and choose to play (poorly or otherwise, depending on the day) rather than spend an inordinate amount of time sitting at my computer reading. Playing the banjo has opened up a whole new world to me, especially here at BHO. I delight in the fact that it feels very much to me like a secret society of sorts and I am a charter member. I have learned a great deal here and will continue to for years to come. My playing is improving steadily and my enjoyment seems to have no bounds. I practice quite often while watching baseball (another passion). I use my Feilding Cuttler banjo mute regularly, so as not to drive the rest of my non musical family crazy with my very repetitive practice sessions. I have availed myself of a few of the thousands of tabs posted here at BHO and found to my delight, that in time, I can actually play them. I want to say thanx to all the members for sharing their experiences, advice, knowledge and humor. And thanx to Eric for all of this.
