I'm a late-blooming multi-instrumentalist that was captivated by bluegrass and utterly smitten by old-time. The banjo players at the Banjo Hangout have seduced me, especially the ones that play fretless banjos with gut or nylon strings (I love their sound). I took 3-finger-style lessons in 2006, but I had to stop because of my travel-for-work schedule being excessive. Now I'm fixin' to learn how to frail, since I'm into old-time. There are some note progressions that I have in mind that I can't imagine how they could be done clawhammer style, so I might end up with a mutant frailing technique. See my website (my Fiddle Hangout profile) for more biographical details.
