Banjo versus TV: Week 15

Posted by jrjenks on Tuesday, April 15, 2008

Banjo 104 hrs, TV 84 hours
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.

Squeezed in a little practice during a busy week. Spent much of my time in my Hal Leonard book, especially on...
The Pinch

Also in the last week:

  • Good topic at the BHO: "What was the worst piece of advice given to you when you were first starting out?"
  • I've been rewatching Understanding the Formula of Music, the DVD I discussed three weeks ago. I pick up a little more with each repeated viewing. For example, this DVD has taught me what an arpeggio is -- a journey of understanding that began in 1970 when I first saw this scene in The Aristocats:

Jr, I've really enjoyed keeping up with your Banjo vs. TV journey.  I nearly typed battle, but I have a very strong suspicion that there is no longer a battle... banjo won out a long time ago!

Keep up the good work, and please keep posting your progress.  It's great fun to read.

All right. The banjo is still winning. Keep up the good work. Pick like your life depended on it.

Thanks, Joanchek and PruchaLegend.

Yes, the banjo is clearly winning the fight.

Being public about it has helped, so I'll definitely keep posting these weekly updates throughout 2008.

Semper plectrum!
