Neighbours aren't very understanding eh? Bought mine some earplugs for Xmas.
Don't matter where you pick, so long as its fun.

Sure is good practice, and fun too. How went your trip to Nashville? Get to go to any jams?

My wife made me what I affectionately call the "Happy Home" Banjo Muffler. It's a round piece of 1/2 inch foam rubber covered in cloth from a pair of my old blue jeans. It can quiet the banjo down to nothing depending on how close to the head you place it.
In my case, the neighbors are understanding, but the family appreciates a little thoughtfulness occassionally.
