Entering the World of The Banjo

Sunday, December 2, 2007

I'm very excited to enter the banjo world and this community at large.  I'm currently searching for that first (well second if you include a real crappy starter and tuning my guitar's 5 strings to banjo tuning for learning) banjo.  I've poured over the forum's posts, read as much as I can and have decided I need to save just a little more in order to get something that will cause me to WANT to learn, practice and play.  I found that out with a Martin guitar.  I tried lots and bought and sold a bunch but now have 2 Martins that are a joy to play.  So I'm going to parlay that advice/purchase into a learning experience for the banjo.  Working on rolls and fingerwork right now.  Not sure if I'll ever get fast enough to play "breakdown" songs but I'm sure I will be looking at hours of enjoyment just the same.  I've rambled a little here so guess that's it for now.
