First let me start by saying that this is my first blog anywhere ever. I feel like I actually need to write about this so let me just get caught up to where I am now. I have always been sort of fascinated by the banjo I have grown up in
I have listened primarily to heavy metal music for the last 12 years or so and most of my friends listen to metal so I don’t get much support on my choice of instruments I discovered Hayseed Dixie and then Iron horse and I really loved that sound it was awesome that someone would blend rock and roll and bluegrass together from there I was sort of reminded of the fact that I really kind of liked bluegrass music. I was talking to A friend of mine one day trying to show him some of my bluegrass music that I had collected (at the risk of being ridiculed of course) I happened to mention that I would like to play the banjo he said me-too … I was like what? Really. Just like that I suddenly had validation for my desire my next words were you know what I going to get one and start get learning. That very night I started doing research on Banjos (That was the night that I discovered this place) I researched banjos for A week strait my wife thought that I had gone crazy and still does I’m sure .I was scheduled to have surgery the next week and was going to have some time at home so I convinced my wife to let me get one right away (had found A deering Goodtimes II at guitar center for 200 bucks) she said go ahead and well here I am now.9 comments
