The best teacher is music itself

Tuesday, March 30, 2010

  Been playing for some time and wondering if i'm doing it right,  Im definitly not playing Heavy driving banjo.  But I did scale back to old gospel and country.  Even putting the banjo where i never heard before.  Kinda like my own style,  If you met me today i could not play a song without music to fuel the fire.  Mostly i get up and move about the house playing without looking just feel, even scooting from X to Y.  On the neck  otherwise i feel there is a wall built on the 4th freet,  This is where i get discouraged,  I realize i need instruction, but i don't want to change what the good lord has shown me.  What is the logical next step.


Thank you     Tom

I bought my first banjo while stationed at Cherry Point, More of a Decorative piece. Started messing around, and become hooked. Lost interest for several years until i went to work for a company, Whom the owner was a picker and i became inspired to pick up and go again. Been at it faithfully ever since.
