Aloha Everyone...This is my first entry to Banjo Hangout...I began learning how to play my 5 String Open Back Tyler Mtn.Banjo I have named = Sunshine since this past January 2015 @ age 63!...I turned 64 in March...I am a Newbie!...And I am Totally! in Passionate Love with my Banjo!...I practice every day!...I have an array of skill practice techniques I am working on... I am practicing fingering up and down the fret board...am learning the fret board in Open G, chords, chord changes, major scales, timing and have been jamming with friends during our music gatherings...I also practice once weekly with one of my girlfriends who is a beginner Ukulele musician..I also have many highly skilled musician friends from whom I can get advice from...altho not one of them plays Banjo...I may be the only female Banjo player on our Big Island here in Hawaii...I only know of one other Banjo player here & it is a man...I am dedicated to continuing to practice and get better and better as time goes on...I Love singing as well and love all kinds of music...Bluegrass, Fok, Country....What ever touches my soul...Aloha...Mary Fairy!

Just this past January of 2015 I developed a Very Passionate! relationship with my Banjo Sunshine!...I practice Every day!!...I Love practicing skill techniques to ensure my skills have a solid foundation in accuracy that will definitely enhance my playing abilities in the future...I jam with friends when we have our informal music gatherings and I play once weekly with another girlfriend who is a beginning ukulele musician...I want to connect with other Banjo musicians...I live on the Big Island of Hawaii and there are no other female Banjo players on our island...I know of only one male Banjo musician who lives on the Big Island...I am from northern Florida originally and Love bluegrass, folk and old time music...I feel this music in my blood when I play..And I Love many other genres of music as well...I am looking forward to connecting with many other Banjo musicians through Banjo Hangout...Aloha...Mary Fairy Banjo Babe!
