Arbuckle Spring Jam '07

Sunday, May 20, 2007

My dad went with me to the Arbuckles yesterday and we had a blast.  It was my first.  I bit the bullet and put my name in the band scramble and (lordy!) ended up in the first band.  When I gathered with my talented group, my hands were shaking so bad (like palsy) and I couldn't place any fingers on the strings...then I was given the lead on our first song - Yikes!  I fumbled thru it and got recruited by some talented and entertaining guys for Open Stage (Four Lucky Guys and a Girl) - we closed with Man of Constant Sorrow sung by our bass-man Mike.  "Bozo" on the dobro.  Walter on the guitar and vocals.  Dad's band took 3rd and we jammed until evening afterward and it was alot of fun.  I so appreciated everyone's kindness and generosity of spirit.  It was so great to play with such good musicians.  I've got pics in my album. 1 comment

Started classical piano at the age of 4. Wanted a different genre, instrument, and way of learnin'. Loved the banjo and decided I would regret it if I never tried. My Banjo Bday is 8-14-06. I'm picking it up quickly and am so glad I did it. Now I can play with my dad and his brothers when we get together instead of being a "listener"
