Hi! My name is Coltin Scott Dale Burkhart. I am a 16 year old boy I have been playing banjo for almost 5years now And I love it. Id say the first real time I really heard bluegrass was probably when I was 5-6 I was riding with my Dad in his truck listening to a copyed IIIrd Time Out CD called (Living On The Other Side) that my Uncle gave to him. I was listening to it and something got my ear. I didn't know what it was all I knew was that sound. I got started playing the Banjo when I was 12. My Dad had a Tent revival in Planvew Mo in 2015 in October. Bye the way my Dad's a Preacher you can find him on Facebook if you want his name its Jeff Burkhart. But anyways. At that time my hands would shake uncontrollably. And I couldn't get any rolls done or nothing. Well the story go's my Dad and a another preacher prayed for my hands and I never had the shakes again. No teacher except God. I remember laying on my back in that old tent with my banjo on my lap before I had to get ready. And figureing out how to do a roll. Pretty good lesson in my opinion lol! I had the privilege to play with a lot of Old Souls in churches. Sadly most of them have now passed away. But I learned lot about music and how it works. And the feeling of it Is truly a gift for God. Last year I played with a gospel group from January to October. The reason I quit was that I learned just because you sing about being a Christian don't mean you are one. Right now I'm just focusing on Being a Christian, School Family And Banjo and waiting for a chance to play with a bunch of guys who just want to have a good time traveling and picking. And show the world what I've learned with the help of Jesus. Well I hope this helped you too know a little bit about my history. I'd have to right a book just to tell you All of it. But anyways I'm here if you need some advice on how to and licks and basically Banjo stuff and Guitar. Okay well I think that wraps it up. KEEP A PICKING! -Coltin Burkhart
