Mark Twain: "When you want genuine music — music that will come right home to you like a bad quarter, suffuse your system like strychnine whiskey, ramify your whole constitution like the measles, and break out on your hide like the pin-feather pimples on a picked goose — when you want all this, just smash your piano and invoke the glory-beaming banjo."

I am a beginner level banjo player and am from North Carolina originally and now live in Virginia. A little over a year ago, I walked into a music store that had a banjo on sale. I bought the banjo and learning to play the banjo has become a positive obsession since then! I thought I would be good within a year or 2 but I now realize it will take years of practice and discipline to become a top-notch banjoist. For some reason, it seems important that I become the very best banjo player I can be. I served in the Peace Corps in El Salvador and my banjo goal is to become an excellent banjoist and travel throughout Latin America playing the banjo and sharing this important part of American culture.
