I am having a blast learning this instrument. I have to say it gets in your soul and you can't seem to let go. I find myself sitting with my ipad after I have put down the instrument just listening to lessons, music and players on you tube and on this website. So far I have learned a little bit of Bile Them Cabbage Down, Cripple Creek and *gasp* started work on Foggy Mountain Breakdown. Got Scruggs Five Finger Banjo Book and going through it slowly with a metronome. All I can say is I am hooked!5 comments

Born and raised in Oklahoma. I have always desired to play the banjo from and early age after hearing Ozark bluegrass going to Branson, Mo. in the summers with my family. I am excited to have finally invested in learning to play the banjo and look forward to utilizing this website to aid in my learning.
