Why ?

Thursday, July 5, 2012

Not that it matters, but just in case a few of you were wondering + it;s good therapy for me. In the last four yrs or so I lost both my parents, my (ex) wife divorced me after over three decades of marriage and six kids, well to the point. I joined this site toward the end of 08' and had a little BG jam (still do) at my house,( where I play a little mandolin/guitar) now apt & wanted to learn banjo, I attempted both BG & Clawhammer several times but never stuck with it too long, as the emotional stress of life divorce, other things , well it was really hard to focus on anything, so I put it aside, & just kept my once a month jam going playing a little mandolin.

Now fast forward a little & feeling a little better like maybe I could focus on learning the banjo, then what style, what moved me the most & would I stick it out for the long haul. I felt that while I enjoyed bluegrass banjo, the style that really moved me was Old time" banjo, clawhammer & also two finger style, so since I sold my past banjos, I went and purchased a ' Goodtime II, bought a few books/video + I start my first lesson today. Really another thing that drew me to Clawhammer was the fact that I live alone now & it's a good solo instrument, soulful, has it's roots in struggle & historically so interesting & I just plain love the sounds that come from it/ thanks
