Got a banjo in college, of course, because anything was better than studying. A campus country rock band did a couple of banjo numbers. Was aware of Pete Seeger as a child. First couple of records, I think, were "Circle" and "Foggy Mountain Banjo". Got a few books and tried everything: Up-Picking, Frailing, and Scruggs. Up-Picking felt as natural as a duck to water. Ever since, I mostly up-pick to bluegrass standards and do fake Earl Scruggs and Benny Martin licks while trying to sing like Lester Flatt. One time when I broke my left wrist, I played my banjo on my lap and fretted my strings with my finger tips like a mountain dulcimer. It sounded pretty good. I still do it sometimes just for fun. 40 years with a banjo is a long time. Wife, Kids, Life. Sometimes I have banjo licks in my head while I sleep, and sometimes I put the banjo away in it's case for years at a time and never even think about it. Right now, I'm getting it out and dusting it off.
