Retired Chicago fireman. Played piano/keyboards in part-time rock and pop bands since about 1976. Never played bluegrass but always had a special interest in the music and was especially drawn to the Scruggs style banjo. In 2018 I finally picked up an Oscar Schmidt beginner banjo and took a few in-person lessons with a local teacher. After only five sessions I was hooked! So hooked, that within four months of first learning how to put on the picks I moved up from my Oscar Schmidt to a Hatfield Buck Creek. Currently, most of my learning comes from two on line courses that I’m subscribed to. I also have a local pro who I see for a face-to-face lesson from time to time. For group experience, I’ve done a couple 8-week Bluegrass Ensemble classes and sat in at a few jams. Musically, the best thing to happen recently is, during the pandemic, I taught my wife how to play guitar. Together, using Strum Machine, we currently have about thirty standards we jam on. Over the past three years my level of motivation to learn and play the 5-string has only gotten stronger! I even did my own setup recently and got kudos on my work from two local pro players.
