Hi people, I have been a very naughty boy! I have neglected my studies and left my beloved banjo in the corner for too long. I think was feeling sorry for myself having no teacher and reaching a stage where it just wasnt getting any easier. Tryin to keep the noise down is a bit of a bind too. Neighbours n` aw that.
I finally realised, wait a minute, you aint gonna get a teacher , so bloody well get on with it yourself. I spent more or less all my teenage years learning guitar and I think I simply forgot how to apply myself cos it aint gonna just happen. Thing is I started pickin again and wow, I noticed a difference right away. Everything seems to flow better. I wouldnt say I am good by any measure but the rolls actually sound fluent at last. I dont know if the rest made any difference but I have a new hunger for learning. Maybe I will hit another wall but I will climb that one when I come to it.
I love this site with all the helpful tips and friendly folks. A big thanks to all who have sent me messages of support. I promise I aint gonna let yas down. Banjo for dummies is gettin hammered I can tell ya!
Keep on pickin you lot and keep in touch

If you don't play, you won't know what you need to ask.
Keep pickin' and have fun.

And the above message comes from a superb musician, whome I have had the pleasure of meeting so the advise is very valid. Guy your banjo playing will soon be as good as your guitar picking, enjoyed listening to your music. regards Lee

Hi Letham, yeah the guys are right - this is a great place to be when you're not pickin'. And I wish you all the best now you've started again. That's really good news. Take care. Bryan.
