been having a great time the past two weeks

Saturday, February 28, 2009

today it s to weeks ago since i bought my banjo, and in those past two weeks I have learned so much

first of all I learned that there is a reason banjo pickers actually use PICKS to pick their banjo. used to playing with four if not five fingers on the guitar, it took some adjusting, luckily my banjo has one less string so that helps with leavin at least ONE finger out of the game
bought a set of picks( plastic), and destroyed the thumbpick within a week because it was irritating and I tried to bend it LOL
got myself a set of metal picks ( dunlop) and to my surprise got used to those pretty fast

made my first recordings, listen back a year from now,..but even now i can allready  hear the difference, after a lot of practise,..bought some lessons at because I don t have a regular teacher. and got addicted to this strange bed pan with strings attached  and craving for more learning material. thank goodness we have the internet. ( and our VISA card)

decided to go to EWOB ( european world of bluegrass) which is in holland and has free camping on the the campsite, so we are going with the family, my husband the two kids and I. looking forward to three days of bluegrass music, finding some new friends, and maybe go to an occasional workshop where I ll probably be hiding in the back haha but it is always fun to see others learn, and I am bound to pick up some good advice there.

am also going to northernpicking here in the netherlands which isnt that far from my home, and will hopefully meet some nice people there. and am sure I ll pick up new things to learn as well

two weeks in the wonderfull world of banjo..what a blast!

it is great to be a banjopicker, even a not so good one LOL

I am a singer/guitarist,started ont the guitar when I was 15 , gave it up after a year of agonising scales and started taking singing lessons, did better at that and studied classical singing for several years in university, sang recital, opera and musical, then had a baby and stopped performing for about 12 years, than picked up the guitarplaying again and finally got the hang of it, started singing again too, but no classical music , mostly folk, country ,blue grass and popmusic, also started wrting my own songs in the past years. hoping to record my first album in 2009 currently playing and singing in two bands, with one I also play my own work, the other is mostly a cover band. I hope to add the banjo to my instrumental skills, mostly for my own pleasure, allways loved bluegrass and the banjo is such a great instrument I play a Guild gad f40 p (blonde) guitar. was given a hondo banjo recently and started playing it finding out how hard it is and how much fun it is
