Ain't picking weather here.....

Posted by lapso77 on Sunday, November 30, 2008

There was nothin better than heading home from work & picking outside up til oct even.....now u wake up it's dark u head home it's dark.....

been pickin inside anyway ( neighbours seem to love this time of yr dunno why....)

Been just playin  chords and fills along to CD's to get my speed up rather than learning new tunes.....is this good practice ???.....Hope i'll soon find the nerve to go to a session........man i can't half pick G, C , D at lightning speed plus a  few fills but dunno what the hell the tune is !!!!!

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.
