The power of the Mic!

Saturday, January 24, 2009

I certainly am no expert, and novice might be to high of a title as well, when it comes to the banjo.  But I can tell you that using a microphone and recording myself on my computer has opened my eyes and ears.  I have seen, and heard, the light.  I knew my music didn't sound great, but I didn't know how it truly sounded.  Especially when I am thinking about the notes and what to do with my left hand and what to do with my right hand.  Even though I appreciated good playing, I have a better appreciation for it.  Just listening to my songs in an MP3 file makes me understand some of where I go wrong.

If you're just starting out, like me, I would recommend that you record yourself.  Don't expect perfection and you won't be disappointed.  But use it to hear what others hear and use it to get better.

I appreciate the comments left.... and the well wishs as well.  This is truly a great community to begin the banjo in. 

Thank you!

I've always loved music, but was never taleneted and decided to buy my Father-in-Laws banjo and learn. When I'm not pickin' I like watching football and being with my family.
