Play banjo, guitar, mandolin, bass, and drums (just not at the same time :) I started playing electric guitar beginning in the 8th grade. I played at sock hops and school dances either playing guitar or bass. After I was married, I started to play drums in our Church band in the late 70s when I was inspired by our banjo player, Jim Smoak (Bill Monroe/Hylo Brown), to try out the 5-string in the early 80s. I took a few lessons from Jim before I moved to central Indiana. Once there, I took a few more lessons from Brian Lappin from Jim and Jesse fame. I have since taken up mandolin from Murrell, and he is helping perfect my banjo--what a patient guy he is....Music allows me to unwind. I usually play some instrument everyday.
