I realised that after being 'knocked out' for 5 days I wasn't going to get to the quality I'd like before uploading a video to the rookie challenge. So, I didn't wait to get better, and instead, this afternoon I just went ahead and did it.
Trust me, I normally sound better, but the camera really does trip you up in ways and I haven't had any time to practice with it as I would have liked. I also quickly realised my banjo recorded better unmuted, and it was quite disconcerting playing it as such.
I think in a couple of weeks (obviously not for the rookie challenge) I'll upload another video later after more practice, and after more camera time just to see how things compare.Add Comment

From the UK and new to American Old-Time. Just listening to as much clawhammer as I can without annoying the missus.

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.
