Following My Muse...

Tuesday, January 20, 2015

For those of you who enjoy my banjo music I wanted to let you know that I've taken a recent interest in learning blues guitar and harmonica.  I can already play some blues guitar, both fingerstyle and electric improvisation but I've always wanted to do a deep dive into the genre and REALLY learn it inside and out. So, I've dusted off my 6 string electric guitar and am enjoying taking the pentatonic minor scale into uncharted territory!  I've also set a goal to learn blues harp (an instrument I have never really played). I have absolutely no doubt that banjo fever will return and I still play my instruments frequently, but for now I feel compelled to follow my muse and see where it takes me!

I'm a part-time luthier ( and a fingerstyle guitarist for over 40 years. I came across my first banjo at an estate sale and have since restored it. Finding this banjo has opened up a new world of creative self-expression for me and I am completley hooked on a variety of styles on the banjo. More info here:
