GOAL CHECK on my Aug 16 goals below:
Short Term goals:
Rebuild my repertoire from scratch to be played perfectly with no mistakes, and bring up to medium pace still with no mistakes.[TICK]
Get relevant tunes in my repetoire up to a speed where I can play along with Josh Turknetts Old Time Jam Machine.[90 percent complete. Need to learn a non crooked Mississippi Sawyer to finish off]

I have a number of tunes I can try to do this with:

e. Old Joe Clark.[Started]
f. June Apple.[Started]
g. Cluck Old Hen.[Started]

[Started]means I have done enough to at least sing along from paper, maybe some verses off paper but have have not yet memorised completely.
Longer Term goals
As well as learning new tunes from tab, add to my repertoire by extracting melodies either from others tabs or by ear and building my own versions of further tunes as espoused by Jack Beuthin and Josh Turknett.[Not yet attempted]

Teaching myself clawhammer from a mix of 'Clawhammer From Scratch' and 'Rocket Science Banjo'. Play guitar to a low intermediate level. Have played many instruments to a comfort zone level of just able to play enough to keep myself happy. Determined banjo will be learned more methodically to try and attain a higher level of playing.
