Busy with School, but the Banjo still Sounds Good

Posted by Banjo Mountain on Thursday, October 16, 2008

I'm a landscape architecture undergraduate at the University of Georgia and I haven't had the time to pick much banjo lately.  My major is one of the hardest and most time-consuming majors at UGA. I spend several hours every weeknight and on the weekends in the studio at a drafting table. The 3 hour studio classes are interesting and neat but we never have enough time in class to finish our projects in class. It's been a little bit rough adjusting to this type of schedule, but I'm getting better. Today I got my banjo out and starting picking. To my amazement, I could pick some songs in 3-finger style that I used to struggle greatly with! I've noticed this before that after not playing the banjo for a while or during a tough period where you have to use your brain a lot, my picking ability improves. I guess this is a good thing, I just don't want to get "rusty".

The banjo sure sounds good when you take it out of its case for the first time in a while.

Every week goes by as a blur. Can't wait for Thanksgiving break.

Sometimes a short break from anything does a person good. Good luck with your major.
